I would very much welcome rendering of public_transport=platform. 

But I do not think that it is reasonable to add rendering for it, and at the same moment drop rendering for highway=platform, railway=platform, highway=bus_stop, railway=tram_stop and everything else that public_transport=platform is meant to replace.

This absolutely needs to be a two step process. Add rendering for public_transport=platform first, then let people work on migrating existing data. At some point in the future it might then become possible to drop rendering for existing tags.
