While trying to fix that the following question came to my mind:

Do we really want the compressed rests to respect

PRO: The user could want to be able to change the behaviour (f. e.
don’t use
maxima rests for ≥ 8 bars rest but two longa rests).
CON: The user could want semibreve/whole rests for every time
(including long durations like \time 17/2) but compressed rests (f. e.
for 6 bars rest in \time 17/2) should use longer values (a longa and a
breve in
this case).

PRO: Backwards-compatibility in cases like
    \override MultiMeasureRest.usable-duration-logs = #'(0 -1)
    \time 4/4
(But would we want that?)
PRO: You wouldn’t need another grob property if you want to change the
behaviour of compressed rests.
CON: You could havenother grob property and control the behaviour of
single bar and compressed rests independently.
CON: It’s easier to code (at least if you don’t have such an extra
