I'd say:

Skip the name for a bus stop.  If rendered it would create clutter.  

More useful, but more fragile, would be to add a description
tag documenting the routes served.  This would be the same data on the actual sign:
            61, F, FX

Yes, wheelchair=yes is a good attribute.  A later wheelmaper may disagree and change it,
but as a first cut go with the agency's view on thing.

Others have asked that source:url move to the changeset.

"website=http://www.fairfaxconnector.com" is still valid for a bus stop, as
is "operator=Fairfax County".
