[Tagging] Deleting private objects in private spaces

So theoretically, we shouldn't ban anything from being mapped (or almost
anything). But practically, we don't want people being routed to the
nearest toilet that is actually inside a power plant. How do we fix this?

One way could be to add a prefix like "private:"
 to anything that is by default public. So, private:amenity=toilette, or
private:amenity=waste_disposal. Then, add an operator tag to it, like,
"operator=Massachusetts Electric Company". If you find yourself inside an
area that has "operator=Massachusetts Electric Company", then the router
can safely assume you can access anything with the "private:" prefix and a
"operator=Massachusetts Electric Company" tag.
