[Tagging] public_transport=platform rendering on osm-carto

If v2 of the 'new' scheme means that we have to create 2 objects for each
and every bus stop and add both of those to the route relations and
duplicate details across them, then v2 has failed.

We should have exactly 1 object that represents the bus stop. A node next
to the way and only add that node to the route relations.

if there is an actual platform, we can draw a way or an area and tag it
highway=platform/railway=platform. These should not be added to the route

Neither should the stop_position nodes be added to the route relations, nor
should they get details like name, ref, etc.

So 1 node to represent the bus or tram stops, next to the way on either
side and only add details to those and only add these to the route

These nodes can get the public_transport=platform tags.

if we can start doing it that way, we will get a way of mapping public
transport that is easy to understand for everyone. If we don't the wiki
will remain murky, unclear and ambiguous.

I rest my case.
