[Tagging] public_transport=platform rendering on osm-carto

Actually I have started to remove public_transport=platform from WAYS with
highway=platform and railway=platform. As far as I am concerned
public_transport=platform goes on NODES next to the ways in combination
with highway=bus_stop or railway=tram_stop.

Removing those tags from ways comes from the objection of some people that
there would be both a way and a platform with the public_transport=platform

In other words, the rendering of *=platform on WAYS is just fine as it is.
