Sometimes this is the only option. Not all ways are two-lane, asphalt
roads; sometimes they're narrow footpaths. If you look here:
you'll see a residential area that shares nodes with a highway=footway.
The path in question is less than a metre wide, so using separate nodes
for the landuse=residential and highway=footway would be messy and just
as hard to edit.
Besides, the edge of the residential area *is* the footpath. If at some
point I resurvey the area and find I got the position of the path wrong
and decide to move it, the boundary of the residential area should move too.
