It does not make sense to change more then half a million tags.
I did not write this, I do not mean that.
And the proposal does not conflict with highway=bus_stop or another tag
you and many others are using the way you explained.
The proposal is NOT for redefining or replacing highway=bus_stop!!!
(Other proposals do.)
Your way of tagging is the "old" way. Historically crown and widely
used/accepted. It is NOT deprecated or obsolete.
But keep in mind that there are more and more mappers they want a more
exact schema then you are using. We should give them ONE approved
possibility how they can do it. Otherwise everyone does it different
(like today). So we should find a consensus how this more exact schema
should lock like.
To say we do not need anything else we have (this is how I read your
text) is not a consensus.
