[talk-au] Correct tagging of railway=platform where it is a sandwich platform

All methods are in current use:

An example of A: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/-34.04169/151.12293
An example of C: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/-33.67210/151.11468

I wasn't aware of platform_edge
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:railway%3Dplatform_edge but in
light of the detailed wiki write-up of it, I think it's better if we
migrate to B. So map the whole platform area, but then add linear ways
for platform_edge along the sides.
