[Talk-transit] validator rule for public_transport=platform

I'm getting messages from the validator claiming public_transport=platform
can only be used on way or closed_way. This is not true. It can be used
perfectly well on nodes. In that case the node represents the position of
the pole. I just checked it on the wiki.
All the poles of Belgian transport companies De Lijn, TEC and MIVB/STIB are
mapped on nodes. If there is a platform, it is mapped, but that doesn't
replace the pole, nor does it get added to the route relations. All the
extra details like name, ref, route_ref etc also remain on the node
representing the pole. The platform ways and the stop_positions are
optional. Nice to have, but not at all crucial. The NODES with
are what define the bus/tram stops over here and those get the details and
those get added to the route relations.
So please correct the validator rule.
