If someone maps a single node on the way and calls it
highway=bus_stop, then that should be OK (but not recommended).

If someone then wants to put highway=bus_stop nodes on either side,
that should be seen as the more correct tagging. The original node
should be stripped of it's highway=bus_stop tag, or changed to
something meaningless like highway=bus_stop_group_centroid or
highway=bus_stop_position (if it genuinely is a stopping position,
rather than a group centroid).
