[Tagging] Aerialway stations

So what is wrong with ele=* on the stations and the topography of the
line? Completely (for OSM purposes) objective and uncontroversial. The
data consumer/renderer can make their own mind up about nomenclature.
Many of these lifts go up to go down, or go down to go up, as they cross
ridges and valleys. One man's incline on a segment of the route is
another man's decline based on the station altitudes. Let's tag the
facts, and not subjective naming.

Generally, for horizontal aerialways top and bottom / valley do not apply, i.e. the original question is directly related to a specific (frequent) configuration: an aerialway which surmounts a significant height difference. We do not have to find a universal solution if the question relates only to this special case.
