The wiki should be changed, especially the use on ways should be removed.

It is useful for quality-check programs to determine "This is not a 
missing connection to nearby ways". (false positives)
A note would have to be clear and machine-readable for this case.

It might be useful for renderers as on a map it might look as a 
connection (because of oversize of rendered ways).
But this could be determined by preprocessing also.
