Most of the public_transport=* tags are pure duplicates of existing,
more popular tags. They add nothing to the OSM database except confusion
Even the person who conceived the scheme admits it didn't work &
recommending it be dropped.
It's disappointing & frustrating to see the iD editor promote them with
the inaccurate claim of "Some tags change over time and should be updated."
