Thank you, Chris and Martin, for your answers.

It sounds this is more complicated than I thought. Currently I am  
solving the problem by specifying a smaller than needed  
simplification tolerance. While this is not optimal it (mostly) works.

It certainly would be nice if GEOS implemented such a feature: in  
many applications one wants to simplify multiple polygons that are  
related to each other rather than just individual ones. I may take a  
look at implementing it myself if I find the time in the future.
