to reduce the uneeded diff between several transport mode.
For the multi-mode platforms, it is even more crying because for the

for highway==platform (the subjet of this thread) with
9k highway=plateform without public_transport=platform
900k public_transport=platform without highway=plateform

the "no PTv2 render" issue.
