Not all OSM nodes are also network/diagram nodes, which are points with
(AFAIK) three or more lines in common. Intermediate OSM nodes in the
middle of a way are not topologically significant.

There is a difference between mathematicaly precise and intuitive formulations:(( https://www.google.co.uk/#q=node%20definition [1] "a point in a network or diagram at which lines or pathways intersect or branch"
