I had been inclined to avoid amenity= because of the volume of past
comments on other proposals, concerned about the number of "amenity"
values. But amenity=storage makes sense. Because so many self-storage
facilities are businesses, owned by different companies, landuse= is
less appropriate. Amenity=storage would lie within landuse=commercial
or, in some instances landuse=industrial, with operator= or name= for
the firm, and self_storage=yes. Internal driveways, parking,
buildings, and external fences and gates could be mapped if desired.
