There are all kinds of buildings we map that are completely private (houses, for example), yet are visible from publicly accessible places. 

If OSM wants to be used in emergency uses or be flexible for odd data sets, mapping private toilets (or propane ovens, house-top solar panels, or places where x is useful.

Oops - I need to untag/retag a couple pools.
