>Inside the city center the bus would stop on dedicated bus stops, but once
they are out of the densely populated area, they stop on people's demand.

In Japan, there are such kind of bus route too.

So "on_demand=yes" flag on bus route relation is not enough for me.
And I don't want to make an OSM object for a virtual platform.

I would propose
 to add Way (part of the bus route) where bus stops on demand as
"stop_position" role on the bus relation.
 (or we can define another role like "stop_position_on_demand")

In the current scheme "stop_position" role is limited to "Node on the way".
But I think "stop_position" can be expanded to Way.
