That JOSM rendering is just a limitation in JOSM's rendering - I'd
imagine it was unplanned.

I'd be happy to see that second solution (i.e. make clear the
interpretation of the tag, for closed ways). I don't necessarily think
it needs a proposal/vote but I'd be happy to see it happen!

Best
Dan

Similarly when there is just one building drawn for a whole street of terrace houses the number range will only be or odd even depending on the side of the road.
