Thanks for the clarification, especially the permalink.

The issue here is not that the way is ending with a barrier node but the 
fact that in a reasonable vicinity to the ending node there's another 
way. Quite often this means that some mapper forgot to connect the 
ending node to a way. In your example this is indeed a false alert, but 
the rule itself is worth keeping. I found several unconnected ways via 
this very keepright "error".
