[Talk-transit] pay_scale_area

With specialist data without a physical presence, like PlusBus zones, 
my view is that careful thought should be given to whether to import 
them into the main OSM database at all, and if they are imported they 
should use namespaced tags. The NAPTAN import of bus stops in 
Birmingham did not (quite rightly) use name or ref, presumably to 
avoid this problem. The PlusBus zones are already a minor irritation 
because they get in the way of editing (often being next to but not 
coincident with roads), so they should try to be as good neighbours as 
possible. A new import should design its tagging considerately, and 
not expect renderers to be changed to accommodate it.

The PlusBus zones would be more useful if you could get them rendered 
(as an area) on http://www.öpnvkarte.de/ .

Incidentally, and apologies if it has already been discussed, but is 
it necessary for every bus stop in Birmingham to be tagged 
naptan:PlusbusZoneRef = BHAMNWS ? Is a PlusBus zone not enough?
