True, except that they can't expel them for an unlawful reason :-)

But in all seriousness, these usually do not have access tags, and
that is not an actual problem.

I realize this is blurring rendering, but I see annotations on
access=private/no (which is good), and on access=permissive (which is
fine, for things that truly fit permissive).  But putting the permissive
icon on shopping mall ways would not serve the map users well.  So I
really just meant that 'pseudo-public' as you call it, which is a good
term, is another case that's between access=yes and access=permissive.

Something like
