Bryce, I agree, my own interest here is I'm heading out on a trip, in an
RV, in a couple of months. I'd like to map these things, need to know
where they are.

My particular interest here is camping and emptying my holding tank, but
there is a huge list of other people who have some other pet need. I
understand the community is (reportedly) reluctant to cater to each of
those needs individually with yet another amenity tag.

Maybe I am wrong, lets see who stands up ?

Truth is, we'll need a lot of use before the rendering people can help.

Not sure I agree. If we document it properly, its searchable and pretty
easy to tag. And we say "amenity=waste_disposal and the waste is XXX".

Agree I'd prefer a high level tag but its not bad like that, really.
