That's the only way stop_area relations are useful for me. To relate a
platform to stop_positions. When I'm building route relations, I have all
the platforms in the correct order. What I then want to figure out is which
ways need to be added to the route relation. Having 2 platforms and 2
stop_postiions in one stop_area is no help in that case. And if it can be
resolved by means of proximity, then the stop_area wasn't needed for that
