[Tagging] Deleting private objects in private spaces

Am I missing something here?  What's the matter with the current schema? If it is essential that a toilet in a power plant is mapped then why not amenity=toilet and access=private? 

Or a better example, a toilet in a train station that is for staff only amenity=toilet access=private or access=official?

Where’s the problem you're trying to fix?

It would require us to add operator tags to every single object inside another object with the same operator tag, if I got you right.

Only to the ones that are by default used by public, so toilets, waste_disposals, and so on.  But they are already mapped wrong, so something has to be done. Adding a "private:" prefix and operator=* tag is one idea, maybe there is a cleaner way.
