Is it fair to say that none of those terms are widely used ?  But, yes,
valid. But please see the waste= wiki page, it already has a mention of
waste=chemical_toilet.  OK, so not perfect but its there, very lightly
used but thats probably because no docs from (eg) camping pages.

N.America - dump station
Australia - dump point
UK - Elsan; CDP
Europe - sani-station, Entsorgungs-Station  // not quite same thing
