Comment(by robe):

 Now i remember the use case why I have multipolygon/polygon.  For one
 project I am working on where we have our own flex renderer, its a pain to
 output multipolygons especially since most of the records in the table are
 singular polygons. I have 9,000,000 records of polygons/multipolygon for
 example of which only 1000 are true multipolygons. Admittedly since we are
 writing our own renderer, the registration issue in geometry_columns isn't
 terribly important except when my client has to view these things like
 Safe FME - as I recall he couldn't see the tables in his FME workbench
 unless they were registered.
