> amenity=dump_station

OK, I was preparing text for that, I searched for "dump_point" which is
the term used here, nothing. Its something we most certainly need and
could be used as a standalone node or one associated with (eg)

Must make a clear distinction between "waste" and "human waste", many
caravans and motorhomes have chemical toilets and need a very specific
dump station to empty. In most cases, its not acceptable to empty them
into a a normal toilet, the chemicals some people use can devastate a
septic tank.

Warin, I am a bit surprised you have added "dumpstation" to the list
even though its not approved. Is this the way its done ? Or is it OK to
mention dumpstation because it does already have a page ?

I'd  also like to add max_stay and something that indicates pets are
allowed, that should be enough for now. Pets=yes/no/conditional ??

I'll add a link to the (inactive) dumpstation one, think we need have a
go at getting that approved, important. Is the model to reactivate the
existing page ?
