I also think that public_transport=platform without *=yes tags is some
kind of incomplete.

Stop positions should be optional but there are some cases where they
are useful. If they are mapped, they should be added to the route
relation. If we don't add them to the route relations, we can skip them
at all.

If you try to invent new tags just to replace old tags and the old tags
are used very often, a proposal is doomed to fail.
