If you've done this, and care that stop positions are mapped in the 
correct place, then I'd suggest that you actually map these stop 
positions (just as stop positions - don't worry about the relations).  
Add some sort of description that says in which circumstances a 
particular stop position would be used.

If you do that, people adding relations can use those stop positions as 
the see fit.  No-one can guarantee if or when they'll do that, but if 
they do, they'll be able to add the stop positions to relations.

Agree 100%.

No-one has a monopoly on "correct" information - everything is to some 
extent an abstraction.
