Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If stations are park & ride facilities and the feeder is not normal roads but a highway, and you can get over a million rides a year for such a station (the stupid in-the-empty-landscape HSR stations in Europe tend to get much less), then yes, I can see your sprawl scenario. However, HSR is typically too long-distance and expensive for commuting.
