Yes, I agree.
That recommendation was introduced yesterday by Pieren . I strongly
The wiki is not for documenting Tagging-trends, but for documenting best
practices. And I would say, that tagging noexit=yes on ways is not a
In my opinion an acceptable comment in the Wiki about tagging noexit=yes
on ways would be "In the past this tag was used on ways very often
(~40%). But because this tagging has several disadvantages, you should
rather tag noexit=yes on nodes.".
