Yes, as well as in the API.
Afaik, JOSM protects against this, but the applet doesn't.

Nodes should only be deletable when used by 0 or 2 segments. in the 
latter case, deleting one of the segments and joining the other in its 

Any deleted segments should be removed from any ways they happen to be in.

I don't think there are any other restrictions on deletion (unless you 
get to merging of different ways used by a segment when a node is deleted :)
