The lack of "pressure" key won't be bad data. Only a lack.
This can be warned in documentation or renders "Beware of this undocumented
hydrant, you may need a pump to get water"
QA tools can encourage mappers to get this information "This water supply
isn't properly described, go look for pressure or source"

All the best
