I've noticed the changeset
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/14080990 where the user
connected a bunch of highways/footways with the railway=station node
and used the name "StreetToTransitConnection".

I've asked the user about this in the changeset comment but I've had no reply.

First problem is, these are all named incorrectly as

Secondly in some instances I've found the footway the user added was
actually incorrect, went straight across the railway line where there
was no footway in conflict with the existing footway network.

In other cases the footway simply doesn't exist. I am curious if we
need a footway to the actual station node? Normally you would have a
footway to the platform and then that is enough, but maybe for routers
we need a way to link the platfrom to a given station so that we don't
need these incorrect footways linking them?

Is a mass revert justified? Or do I need to go and do a mass removal
of the "StreetToTransitConnection" name tag and fix up the ones I know
about (which means there is no footway between the station node and
the rest of the network)?
