That's basically correct but I suggest that if you intend to use tags 
that are used elsewhere to mean something different then you should 
prefix them with your user id and a colon to avoid misunderstandings.

If you want, you can supply your own "mappaint style" file to JOSM where 
you can define how you want your nodes to look like.
