Yes, that's it, but where is it written? ;)

Josm validator warnings are often about problems that are not
explicitly described and sometimes I also don’t agree they are a
problem (exceptionally, mostly they work), it’s up to the mapper to
decide, they are just hints about eventual problems.

I think the issue is foremost that it is nowhere written down what this message exactly is so it is difficult to make the judgement what do do with it. For instance the OSMI page about address checks [1] nicely lists error messages but the page about tagging errors [2] only describes possible messages and for water [3] there is not even that.
