I have been looking for some osm nodes using Nominatim but they keep coming up not found. In particular I am looking for node 583465712 and the xml comes back as OSM ID Not Found:

Why is there a difference in the data that Nominatim pulls and what OpenStreetMap has?

I'm not a Nominatim developer, but I believe nominatim only support reverse look up for POIs, e.g. You are free to prove me wrong, until then I'm closing this bug.
