Ouch... you're right, that's why I added the 
public_transport=stop_position with the stop role, sketch-line wouldn't 
render the platform alone. It's been quite a while since...

Here we're getting into one of the uglier parts of transport mapping - 
large terminals (amenity=bus_station) with multiple stop positions and 
platforms. I deliberately left that out of the proposal I presented (my 
plan is to present that as a later extension).
