if that toilet is tagged with amenity=toilets it is a tagging error and the
tag should be fixed or the object completely removed. The toilets tag is
for "toilet[s] open to the public".

not at all. You can't assume it.
Also that scheme would require really a lot of tags to be added because it
seems it doesn't rely on inheritance from encompassing objects.
