Everyone can still tag how she/he likes to despite what is written on
the wiki.

Anyway, we really want to encourage mappers to map noexit=yes on nodes
and not on ways and we need to make aware of the difference between the
traffic sign for a dead end road and the meaning of noexit=yes.

Noexit=yes tagged on ways might no be wrong but it makes it harder to
tell the difference. In certain situations it gets ambiguous and overall
makes it more complex.

Conclusion, I am still in favour of tagging it only on the end node and
to update the wiki accordingly.
