I've committed an improvement in GDAL per https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/changeset/35630 (will be in GDAL 2.2) to transform GeometryCollections to MultiPoint, MultiLineString, MultiPolygon when possible. On this dataset, this reduces the number of real GeometryCollection to 3.
It is also possible to define the DXF_MERGE_BLOCK_GEOMETRIES=FALSE environment variable so that GDAL doesn't try to create GeometryCollections when resolving DXF blocks. But of course you'll get somehow "artifical" objects.
