Sounds like a third option is required. Here (Melbourne, Australia)
tram stops vary from just a sign on a telephone pole to "super stops"
(raised platforms, safety barriers and ticket machines) to former
train stations that now only serve light rails. The first are clearly
"railway=tram_stop", the last are really "railway=station" (but it
would be misleading to render them exactly the same as a real train
station), but the super stops are really something else, some subclass
of tram_stop maybe.
