Your logic is correct.
But in OSM it is common practice that several tagging schemes for the same
situation coexist. This is one of them We have 400000 highway=stop and 4000
I would leave it as is, at most adding in the wiki that there are two
dfferent approaches. It seems that the "minority" approach, i.e. "
traffic_sign=stop", is not described a present.
