Ah, I think I see what happened... iD really wants me to tag the node as 
something, and I was just seeing "yield" at the top of its suggestion 
list. I think I didn't notice because every other node I as looking at 
just showed up as a "point", apparently because they belonged to more 
than one way.

Also, I was trying to figure out why an apparently unnecessary node was 
there, which probably helped mislead me into thinking it was tagged. I'm 
pretty sure I'd intended to split between crossing and just sidewalk 
there, as discussed earlier in this thread (also why I was looking at 
that particular spot in the first place) and botched it. (Fixed, now.)
