As I understood, the "noexit=yes" means "this way is a cul-de-sac".
What is unclear if the tag is on the last node or on the way itself ?
It is still a cul-de-sac...

It seems that 40% of the "noexit=yes" tags are on ways and are
understandable by their contributors but 100% of the persons writing
on this thread do not understand what 40% of the contributors do ...
So, instead of trying to change 40% of the contributors with wiki
fiddling and josm obscure validations, you should try to open a bit
your mind and accept that contributors can supply the same information
in different ways (or nodes ;-). Stay open like "Open"StreetMap ;-)
