I don't think public_transport=stop_position is a particularly obvious
tag (except as part of a wider scheme), so I'd probably mention both
and see which we can persuade people to render.

I've been attempting to order a relation using P2 (I don't recommend
trying it yourself yet - the process needs streamlining). I managed to
sort the nodes in a two-directions-with-loops relation:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/85299

and got a reasonable line-diagram, once I'd added forward_stop and
backward_stop:

http://78.46.81.38/api/sketch-route?85299

I think this confirms that line diagrams will work fine with stops
beside the way.
