I noticed yesterday that the public transport article[1]  is still  
linking to 'User:Oxomoa/Public transport schema' article for tagging  
information even though this is a personal page and therefore not  
something that others should touch.

For starters should we agree not to link to personal pages for tagging  

I have developed a Stop Area article[2] based on Oxomoa's proposal and  
which also included feedback from CEN. It is currently available as a  
'proposed feature'. however it should in general echo current  
practice. Would it be appropriate to now move it into the main name- 
space and use it as the primary overview article for stations, bus  
stops etc?

If so should we just do it or do a formal vote first. Given that it is  
actually now a summary of current practice I would recommend moving it  
without voting but would be happy to follow the majority view.  
Thoughts please!
