In short, splitter is "cheating" to save memory and computations. It 
does not copy complete ways and relations that have at least one node 
within the current tile.  Instead, it defines two tile borders. The 
inner border is defined as the bounding box. The outer border is the 
bbox+overlap. All nodes within the outer border will be included. I am 
not entirely sure about the treatment of ways and relations, but it 
could be that all ways and relations that refer to the copied nodes will 
be copied.
