Something unverifiable on the ground. What you describe is just a contract
between an organization and a landowner. And who will need this information
excepted the organization and the landowner ? It's not because an
information is available that it has to go into OSM.
But I see a similar issue about "informal" car parks. In the countryside,
you can park your car potentially everywhere when it's not forbidden. It is
not a reason to tag such places with "amenity=parking".
