Design on a grid. And perhaps only map adjacent areas of the same
type or scale (wilderness, city, indoor, ...). Maybe if you're going
to have abnormal exits in some areas, try to find a way to tag them
so they'll be ignored by the mapper.

So yes, a sensical mapping algorithm isn't going to have an easy
time interpreting a nonsensical zone.
