First reading you post I thought it's about mapping ownership in 
general. But after spending some more thoughts I think this falls more 
into the mapping on actually relevant use permissions/restrictions. So 
the closest concept is probably boundary=protected_area although it 
perhaps doesn't fit exactly.

As you mentioned the concept of "public land" could be rather specific 
to some countries, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_to_roam gives 
some aspects.
