Please could you explain what situation do highway=bus_stop /
highway=platform / railway=platform not cover already, that requires
public_transport=platform to be added to the list? If you're not
intending to deprecate, then you're just adding complexity.

Also I think you need to make a clearer case for
public_transport=stopping_position. You claim it's needed for routing
- but routers currently seem to manage without.

The existing tags can cover the simpler situations (starting with a
single node, then two or three nodes, then the two nodes become
platform ways/areas), and still used for the more-complicated
situations (>2 platforms / bus_stops), just grouped into a relation
(and at which point you might well drop the original single node).
