Even if you change it from highway=primary to highway=primary ?

- select 2 node, one with no tag, the other with a created-by on
- JOSM display "created-by:<different>"
- remove the "created-by" tag
- clic upload

-> JOSM will upload the two node, even if the previously untagged one is 
not really modified.
