It is just a warning, that this is one of the seldom situations where 
you need a relation - just check, obey and ignore afterwards.
Furthermore the editor can check for the relation too.

Yes there is a possibillity for such a situation, but I doubt they would 
be essentially - and it can be solved by a relation.
But a pure possibility should not effect the majority of simple 
situations - it is OSM-like to consider simple solutions and spare 
relations for the difficult ones only.
