Yes, the Public Transport proposal is basically based on Oxomoa, but in 
some details different.

unified stoparea would "redefine" highway=bus_stop from beside the way 
to on the way. I'm quite sure this would reject the proposal in a vote.

unified stoparea and public transport can and do exist beside each 
other. But you are right, it does not make sense to approve both proposals.

I do not care about which of the two proposals will be approved. But I 
think it is time to get a more exact schema approved then the 
fuzzy/non-existing schema (A railway station of 400m length and 20 
platforms or a bus stop for 3 buses per direction of 50m length is 
reduced to one node) we have now.
