[OSM-dev] Bug in XAPI or Osmosis?

I found a bug either in XAPI or Osmosis:

If you download relations from XAPI, members of relations without a role,
don't get an attribute 'role', which breaks Osmosis processing that file.
Osmosis (0.31) gets a NullPointerException, if no role is defined.

<relation id='1'>
  <member type='node' ref='1'>

Something like this works for Osmosis:
<relation id='1'>
  <member type='node' ref='1' role=''>

For now I wrote a workaround via sed:
sed "s/<member \(.*\) ref='\([0-9]*\)'/<member \1 ref='\2' role=''/" file.osm

But I think, somebody should either fix Osmosis, so I works without roles,
or fix XAPI, that it returns empty roles.
