ref/local_ref has been argued here in the past, I can't remember the
reason for settling on the latter, I personally prefer the former.

The BusStopType is only applied to stops that are CUStomary, usually
meaning no flag is present, or referred to by the flag opposite.
physically_present=opposite will not contradict naptan:BusStopType=CUS

Whether or not to leave the highway=bus_stop tag is local preference for now.
