Bryce, I'm referring to the OSM file located at
https://irma.nps.gov/App/Reference/Profile/2202706, which hasn't been
uploaded to the OSM server. I'm looking at the location you specified in
that file, and cannot detect any building corner nodes that are tagged as
toilets. Perhaps I am still missing something?

official_name= is fine, but name= should really be what people see on the
ground (either nothing, or a short form like "Loop A" or "Sites 86-99").

The new dataset is like the old ones, with toilets at the corner of their
building outlines.
