what are the obvious reasons not to record if land is owned by the public
or privately owned?

I think it is not done because people think it is obvious (which might be
true, but only locally / within a given jurisdiction), but it would be
interesting to record it IMHO. E.g. some forests are private, but in
Germany this doesn't imply you cannot enter them. Sometimes, you are
allowed to walk in the forest, sometimes you may do so but only when
keeping on the ways, etc.
