Deleted objects have visible=false. Normally deleted objects are not
returned by the API so users generally only get to see objects with
visible=false if they query the history for a deleted object.

Yes, but only 1 level deep.
- All relations referencing the nodes and ways are returned
- Any relations referencing the ones above are also returned.
