I think you have misunderstood my statement.
The example was about noexit on ways vs. on nodes (response to Ronnie 
Soak's example with the barrier in the middle). It was not on the 
situations where the tag. Regarding the latter point, I think we share 
the same opinion, as far as I've read.
What I wanted to express: Nodes are better than ways, because nodes are 
more precise. You could mark the one end with noexit (where noone can 
pass) and leave the other end as it is. With ways you would have to 
split the crossbar, to achieve an unambiguous result.
