While a node at exact coordinates can be added with Shift-D, how would one obtain coordinates of a node in JOSM?

Adding this here as this is the 3rd time when I would spend time searching for this and not finding any answers.

It's as simple as Edit -> Copy Coordinates.

This will copy the coordinates in decimal degree format.

This works for all nodes, including ones that have not been uploaded yet (for uploaded/existing nodes one could also hit Ctrl+H and extract node coordinates from the browser).

The keyboard shortcut, depending on the platform, will be:

  • Shift-Control-C
  • Shift-Command-C

Also [Shift][Control]C works.

Indeed, there is a keyboard shortcut associated with the menu entry. Added the defaults based on the platform, thanks.
