[Tagging] public_transport=platform rendering on osm-carto

When discussing rendering public_transport=platform on default OSM.org
map style (osm-carto):


I realized that highway=platform is not only marked on wiki as much less
popular, but is also really 10 times less popular in the database. The
same is true for railway=platform. Moreover this is true for years,
before even osm-carto was created!

I think it's good to make a rendering shift then and drop both old
schemes in favor of the public_transport=platform, with some grace
period to not make anything in a hurry and allow smooth migration for
the whole ecosystem. That might include deprecating message on both wiki
pages to make things more clear.

Any comments on that?
