I assume this is modeled after the "map" call in API 0.6 which does the 
same. Ways that have no nodes in the box (or, for example, closed ways 
that go fully around the box) are not considered. In the OSM database we 
do that because it is considered too computationally expensive to 
keep/query an indexed geometry for every way and relation.
