[OSM-talk] Remove validation rule asking to add highway=footway to railway/public_transport=platform

I went to check a platform tagged as


which is perfectly alright.

iD tells me that's deprecated and suggests to change it to:


Then upon uploading it tells me another "improvement" can be made:


So they are transposing highway=platform to highway=footway. Odd.

Anyway, complaining about it on a mailing list doesn't have any effect,
complaining about it on github will get the issue closed in no time.

I also think a time out for iD makes sense, until they will start to listen
to the community. Tough call, of course and they know it.

Oh well,

Back to JOSM for me.
