The English-language discussion appears to have long reached a
consensus (except for you).

My German is not sufficient to follow the discussion, but clearly
there are more people arguing each way, and shouting about it.

If some people wish to use highway=bus_stop on the road, with
highway=platform alongside, that can perfectly well be deciphered by
software, and clearly documented as an alternative approach, and tag
stats displayed to show which is dominant where. It does not need a
public_transport key to confuse matters further.
