The proj command does a simple forward projection and ignores the +towgs84 
datum transformation parameters. The cs2cs command takes these into 
account to give a more accurate result. If you leave off the +towgs84 
parameters from the cs2cs command line you will get the same result as 
with the proj command line. It looks to me like the JOSM plugin is not 
doing the datum transformation, only the projection (I had a quick glance at 
to confirm this) - but that is certainly not easy to fix.
