The problem is that a platform is not a footway, at least not universally.
People can also walk over meadows, following this logics we should be
suggesting to add highway=footway to all meadows? Or amenity=parking?

I agree, this should not become suggested tagging.

It is so sad the issue has been closed in the github tracker because of too
many people complaining (politely) about a developer decision. Closing
issues because of disagreement is toxic behaviour and it is understandable
it makes people worrying.
