I agree. But... (there's always a but...)

What about areas that really are defined by the road? I came across a
validation error for a parking area recently where the parking area
shared a way with the road that was one boundary of the parking area.
It's at the centre of the map here:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-33.4656&lon=151.43433&zoom=17&layers=B000FTF

I think in this specific example the parking area is small enough that
it should just be a single node, but I can see larger areas existing
someplace.
