So that it would change from

- user selects object, info panel including "upgrade the tags" button appears
- user edits tags/geometry


- user selects object, info panel appears
- user edits tags/geometry
- "upgrade the tags" button appears


I admit I am not convinced that it addresses the problem.

I think that problem in in specific validator rule that is clearly unwanted by general
community* and it does not matter when and how it appears.


* I was adding highway=footway to man_made=pier and public_transport=platform mapped
as lines long before iD introduced this change but I still think that complaints about this rule
should be at least treated seriously

For adding highway=footway on public_transport=platform areas I disagree both with how it
was introduced and with rule itself
