Well, technically passengers are not needed e.g. for train stations
(goods would be fine as well), but I agree that in OSM we could
restrict the usage to passenger transportation (and have another tag
IMHO the definition could be: "A station is a public transport
facility where vehicles regularly stop to load or unload passengers,
which is bigger than a pair of bus stops or tram stops." (even if an
aerialway-station might be smaller). To be even more clear it could
be: "A station is a public transport facility where vehicles regularly
stop to load or unload passengers, which in the case of buses or trams
is bigger than a pair of bus stops or tram stops."

Yes, they are missing here:
I also have noted another thing: "The station itself is mapped as an
Area". Is it necessary to restrict usage to ways, wouldn't it be
better to encourage usage of a relation?
