Whoa, that's quite different from how I interpret the stop_area. For 
example, for a "normal" bus stop, this would include 4 nodes (or 2 nodes 
and 2 ways): a platform and a stop_position for each direction.

A bus station with 6 platforms would contain 12 nodes/ways at least, 2 
per platform, + associated shelters, station nodes etc.

What makes you think a stop_area belongs to exactly one
