Validator reports suspicious tag combination for pedestrian area enclosed by barrier

I encountered this issue trying to map a basketball court with a fence around it.

If you create an area with the three tags you need to use to mark a way as a fence and enclosing a pedestrian highway, you get a warning. I'll attach an example.

The three tags are:

I'm pretty sure that this should actually be acceptable. The only warningless solution I can come up with is creating two nearly identical ways, one slightly smaller than the other, and tagging them separately, which doesn't feel very great to me.

I think that the validator should not report the barrier+highway tag as suspicious when the way has area=yes as explicit or implied by something like landuse=*.

You need two objects in this situation as at least area=yes is ambiguous.

In my eyes, most primary tags should not be mixed and JOSM does not offer any of these combinations. See also my comment and follow-ups on #20924 about objects without area=*.

Ah alright. Thanks for the reply. Apparently I still haven't quite internalized the "One feature, one OSM element" ethos.
