Discussion on talk GB has now lead me to the following tags:

   - `naptan:AtcoCode` [Imported]
   - `naptan:NaptanCode` [Imported]
   - `naptan:CommonName` [Imported - should match `name` but may differ, is
   what the indicator is relative to]

not bloating the bus stop tagging these seem like the most important/useful

Another question I have is do I need to follow this step of the import

The NaPTAN import is already listed as in progress in that table. Would it
make more sense for me to just edit the respective NaPTAN pages and link to
a page I create to document only my regional import?
