Dear all,

I tagged the public_transport=stop_position's on the light rail network in my 
region with railway=tram_stop, because the wiki mentions that "Insert a node 
with railway=tram_stop and name=* on the tram track (railway=tram) at the 
position where the stop is located." However, the light rail stations actually 
resembles "railway halts" (the layout is exactly the same as the image in the 
wiki, with only the station building missing), and I have also put a 
"railway=halt" (or "railway=station" for stations with switches) in the 

This changeset attracted a comment "railway=tram_stop is probably a bad idea 
for the stop positions, causes rendering mess. Maybe better just to use 
railway=stop". What's the generally accepted practice for tagging light rail 
stations which resembles "railway stations" or "railway halts"?
