Dammit. Once again I replied to the original author only, this morning. :(

Can you please clarify this?

>From your words I assume that NAPtaN groups stop elements by drawing a
perimeter around them? Or connect them all with ways?
If that is the case I oppose the physical marking you seem to suggest
and would rather group them logical by means of a relation. OSM does
have the necessary data models for that, which NAPtaN seems lacking.
The conversion would be something like: If element is withing boundaries
in NAPTaN, they will become members of the stop_area-relation.

If I misunderstood, please ignore :)
