[Tagging] Mapping private home toilets

Here's a draft of a wiki tag for this:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Template:Mapping_Private_Property

I'm not sure this fully captures the complexity though.  We want building
outlines and perhaps private swimming pools as landuse indicators.
OSM does indeed catalog objects available only to paying customers, like
water taps, movie viewing screens, and sanitary dumps.
But I feel we don't want to direct map readers to put rubbish in private
bins, urinate in people's home toilets, for draw water from people's sinks.

*Thus this should be OK for the lobby toilet:*
tourism=hotel
name=The 5 Star
toilets=yes
toilets:access=permissive
toilets:wheelchair=limited

*Or mapped as an area and a node:*
tourism=hotel
building=yes
name=The 5 Star
website=http://5star.example.com

amenity=toilets
access=permissive
wheelchair=limited
description=Lobby toilet, just past reception.


*But a private toilet at best should get tagged but not widely rendered:*
building=residential
toilets=yes
toilets:access=private
toilets:disposal=composting

or:

building=yes
amenity=toilets
access=private
note=Cute looking outhouse on the hill, with moon and stars.

or to really tag for the rendering:

building=yes
private:amenity=toilets
access=private
note=Cute looking outhouse on the hill, with moon and stars.
