I suggest to revert the changeset. I'm all for consistency, *if* we want full names in the operator tag, we should do this for all (public transport) operators IMHO.
This would lead to some discussion on how to name them in detail and then we can prepare a mass edit for *all* stops, not just a few hundered and leaving the operator tag in a inconsistent state.
Is anybody against reverting?
I'll do it saturday, if nobody is against it. then we would have a consistent state again and can decide carefully about a possible mass edit.
