yes, a bus stop and a railway platform. For me it looks ok to have 2 object
in this case.
The so-called "multimodel station" (one object) really is just different
ways of transport at some kind of interchange (several objects from this
point of view).

I was not questioning PTv2 completely, for example I am not against stop
area / stop area group relations, but there is no need to change the
tagging of 2 million bus stops nor have I ever missed a possibility to map
a bus stop and a train platform on the same object.

yes, bus stops on the highway are an issue, but while this was wide spread
years ago, it seems to have become relatively rare now.
