I'm afraid not to understand what you mean. What is the difference between 
deleting inner rings and "changing the geometry so that it covers the same 
area with only the outer ring" ?

There's no one-line invocation for such functionnality. But it can be done 
with the OGR API and a few dozains lines of code.
