[Tagging] Was public_transport=platform intended to always be combined with highway=bus_stop?

There's something I haven't found a way of mapping.  That's a bus stop
where there's a bay
inlet into the pavement (aka sidewalk, aka causeway).  If it served a
different purpose and
had different road markings, it could be a lay-by (aka rest area) or a
parking bay.  But it's a
bus stop where the bus does not obstruct the flow of traffic.  There are
four of those in
my town, that I can think of (there may be others I've missed).

Yes, I could use area:highway or add area=yes to a closed way, but those
don't seem to render
on a popular, well-known carto intended for mappers to check their work for
anything but
pedestrian ways.

Is there a way of doing it that I've missed?  If not, could we have one?
