How can I run Simplify Building and maintain shared edges between the polygons?

I am trying to run Simplify Building on a coverage. I want to simplify the shape of buildings and I want to maintain the topology of the buildings (i.e. maintain shared edge between the polygons). I understand Simplify Building will do this for straight line shared walls (but not for more complex ones).

Simplify Building works on my Shapefiles but doesn't maintain the topology (as I might expect). However, when I run the Simplify Building on a coverage (I have built from the Shapefile, states the topology is defined and Topology Clean runs on it), I get the following error:
