I could understand a tag "toilets=yes" on an harbour area if toilets are 
not already mapped on they own in it, maybe with an "access" tag. But I 
don't understant the ""harbour:toilets"

"Relation are not categories"
Maybe we should had "Areas are not catalogues, almanacs" especialy with 
an odd set of tags, but objects.
