Is this also the case when all staves except one have a clef-change?

In other words: is your point that

  - all multi-rests should be horizontally aligned


  - multi-rests should be centered between barlines, instead of
    closest bar/clef/key-sig/etc.

I think it should be the first, and without conflicts (eg. for single
staff music), they should be centered in the available space,  taking
clefs into account.
