Description

Potlatch encourages Mappers in simple view to tag outer ways of multipolygons and other relations. There is no indication in this view that this way is part of a relation. Potlatch writes: "No tags set Please use the menu below to define what this way is".

Instead there could be a notice: "This way is part of a multipolygon relation. Please use advanced mode or another editor to see the details or make modifications. Please note that multipolygon support of Potlatch is currently quite limited.".

This applies to other relations as well.

This would reduce very much the possibility that the mapper destroys a relation without even being aware of it.

In a more restrictive scenario Potlatch could also refuse to edit ways which are part of relations whose type PL can't handle.

I have explained P2's multipolygon rationale on the mailing lists. If you want it to be changed to additionally support tagging the relation, submit a good patch. I will be happy to help with the coding and UI issues for this patch.
