Erik, this gets really messy here. Not mapping a playground as a playground
just because of the access? We don't map amenity=parking differently
just because of access=customers.

We have all the tools already without the need for a new tag, and
definitely these shopping centre playgrounds should not be tagged
as kindergarten, the latter is a more institutional amenity.

playground:indoor=yes or playground:outdoor=yes
playground:supervised=yes or no (referring to staff supervision)

Yes we can, see playground=* as approved, e.g. playground=swing
