In the case of private toilets, the issue is surely one of privacy. 
Within a private boundary, no "amenity" tags should appear at all. Where 
a toilet within that boundary is contained either within the main 
building or a separate building, then no toilet tags should appear at 
all. It is a private matter for the property owners as to the usage of 
their structures.
