I just checked, and iD doesn't display the ref, only the name.  But it no
longer needs
an explicit area=yes to get the label in the centre of the plot rather than
putting it along
the edge as though the closed way were a highway.

Yes and no.  IIRC, ref has been pressed into use for things it was never
intended to do
and caused some problems.  OTOH, it's now well-established so you're right
that it
doesn't seem logical to invent a replacement, especially when the original
(and its purportedly approved version) said to use ref=*.
