Warin, I need to head out now and will look at rest of you questions
later. But one question, how about a 'flatter' approach ?

amenity=dump_point  (or dump_station ...)

drop the intermediate step involving waste=  I don't like the two stage
approach, know Dave S does not either.

I know there are a lot of amenity tags but there are a lot of amenities
in this world.
