I've seen areas where previous mapper(s) have put traffic_sign nodes adjacent to a way with speed limit information and did not put a maxspeed tag on the way itself. I suspect they weren't/aren't programmers. :)

For what it is worth, the only time I use noexit=yes is on nodes at the end of a way. And only there if the way ends close enough to another way that JOSM gives me a warning. From a topological point of view it is useless, to quiet nonsense warnings it is useful.
