This seems like a good plan.

I would maybe suggest checking if the platform is a member in a
stop_area and if that stop_area already includes a highway=bus_stop.
But I don't know how widely stop_area has been used in Poland.

Presumably that should be "a specialist subject which has its own
community such as a mailing list" or something.

I guess you could ask the editor of
and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct&diff=next&oldid=1186548

I did see editors focused on drawing pipelines (though I wonder about
verifiability sometimes) and there is a guideline for maritime stuff
like seamarks so I guess there might be a sub-community interested in
oil rigs somewhere.
