so sterile is inside the terminal that deals with passengers (the TSA theatre) 

and sida is for security of the plane & airport operations, right?

so this is like where the terminal cargo trucks come in or other vehecles can be on airport property?

or like the access to the tower? or is it just the area inside the fence, and something assumed with the airport’s area polygon?

Is this something that can be tagged as a line boundary or an area? isn’t  baggage handling indoors - or is that the name for the staging area outside?

Where bags are packed into cargo? Or do they put makeup on the bags to make them cuter?

whats the deal with this?

isn’t AOA assumed on the taxiways, runways, apron? I guess the apron is cut up a bit…

Would it be bast to Have Aeroway=fuel_station and then use the fuel subtag to describe all the fuels? I would hate for a gas station icon to pop up somewhere where I couldn’t access it with normal transportation or not really be a “gas station”. Maybe the local airport has an accessible gas station for getting 50gal of avgas in your pickup truck, but the gas truck station refilling with jetA for the airliners isn’t really accessible nor a gas station.

I wanted to start cleaning up Narita International in Japan - great tags for that.
