If you download some data with JOSM and then save it as an .osm file, it has 
one or more elements like the one below at the top of the file.

  <bound 
box='52.08475079143252,5.094459681354584,52.090622900019625,5.104450689617659' 
origin='http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.5' />

They are used in JOSM itself to draw the yellow boxes around the data, but 
they could be used by any other application to determine the extent to 
render.
