So we can have bench=yes;bin=yes;lamp_post=yes on the same node if  
there are these other items attached to it.

Personally I would prefer bus_stop=shelter/pole/customary/etc/etc to  
shelter=yes/no as it allows much greater richness and gives us a place  
to identify as stop as customary easily. It also fits with the pattern  
'key=x' and the 'x=....' with more details of the feature
