This is how you are using it.
It is inconsistent.
It is incomplete.
It is historic.

Beside your opinion there exist other, better schema that are _in use_:
- Oxomoa (draft)
- Public Transport (proposal)
- unified stoparea (proposal)
- stop place (proposal)
- several variations of the four listed schema.

If we go on waiting to approve one of them, the number of ideas and 
proposals will grow and the variations of them will increase too. This 
is not what OSM is designed for. OSM is useless if everyone makes it
