In the EU a Stop Point is the place that the person waits for the  
vehicle, which is beside the road/track and the place where the  
vehicle stops in called a Stopping Point is on the road/track.

Can we agree that a Stop in OSM is the same as a Stop Point and is  
therefore correctly positioned beside the track. What OSM is proposing  
to call a Halt is on the track and is the same as a Stopping Point.  
The unified Stop Area proposal is a great one to settle this one for  
good for all public transport modes.  I do hope we can drop that as a  
'moot point' soon!
