In this regard, PTv2 is easier than the old scheme, as you no longer have two separate highway=platform and highway=bus_stop. You only have a single public_transport=platform. If it’s on a node, then it’s just a simple pole or otherwise marked stop without any real platform, if it’s tagged on a way (representing the platform edge) or an area (representing the whole platform) then you got an actual platform.

a bus stop usually didn’t have a highway=platform, just highway=bus_stop, only for platforms on stations the former is suggested.
It is only a fraction (94k) of all bus stops (2M) that could be seen as simpler after a change.
