imho he need at least to document it

but not only.
the wiki said "covered=* is used to denote that an object represented
by a node, way or area is covered.

you can use it for a lot of objets like a bicyble parking, entrance.
159k highway - 42k highway=bus_stop = 117k
less than 1/3 of all combinations are related to a highway

I myself use covered=yes for a lot of not-highway objects
