Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I've been trying to find a tag that represents whether a bus stop has a shelter or not. That is, whether it is simple a stop with a sign or a stop with a bench and a roof. Is there any such thing already?

I am considering bus_stop:sheltered = yes/no

"shelter=yes/no" is widely used in combination with "highway=bus_stop" You can see that from looking at taginfo, here:

I think it must have been a mailing list conversation I read which discussed such tags as I can't find it on the wiki. As well as shelter=yes/no there was bench=yes/no, timetable_case=yes/no, waste_basket=yes_no, kerb=raised (where there was a raised kerb) and perhaps others. I can't find it immediately though.
