The real question is what type of tag would attract rendering support.
 amenity=dump_station is easier to deal with,
as it's a single level that maps to the commonly understood function of a
place to dump a sewage holding tank.  There is a common icon:

amenity=waste_disposal + waste=chemical_toilet
is a nested tag, and far less clear.  Someone searching for a preset for
this might not find it.  And it's not entirely
clear exactly what the waste is (the toilet or the contents of the toilet)?
