Did WMATA change the parking rules? There was never a rule against overnight parking. The rule according to signs in the lots and WMATA's website is "Parking limited to 24 hours"...meaning you can park overnight as long as you remove the car less than 24 hours after you initially park it. If the reverse commuter parks the car at 6:30 PM and removes it at 8:30 AM, that is less than 24 hours.

Or is the thought that the permits will let you park more than 24 hours straight, so that you could legally, say, drop your car off at 6:30 PM on Friday and not move it until 8:30 AM on Monday?

I've reverse commuted before using this method before Metro came to Tysons, and never had anyone tell me I couldn't park overnight based on the current 24 hour rule.
