I'm pretty sure *only* the visible/active elements make it to planet.osm,
and the attribute is omitted because it would be redundant. It seems likely
the Protocol Specification on the Wiki is incorrect in showing the visible
attribute. Maybe that attribute is used on upload, though; I don't know
(seems unlikely, though).
