One could tag every power outlet that seems to be in a public space.  For

Why?
A random outlet is unlikely to be well positioned, maintained or
universally usable for device charging. People
are free to map those outlets, but rendering should be able to choose if
they are included.
I don't see these as the same feature at all.

Another type of port often seen are "shaver only" ports, intended to be
unusable for anything else.
Camp sites may have these, and they may work for device charging in some
limited cases, but they
are clearly not dedicated for that purpose.
