yes, there may always be considerations from individual mappers to refrain from mapping certain things , for different reasons like courtesy, respect etc., and this is perfectly fine (more difficult to judge are deletions for such reasons)

not sure, this will probably depend on the jurisdiction, I am aware of situations where the addresses and names of businesses are public. Speaking about ordinary registered businesses here, if the activity is illegal or at least not registered for tax avoidance (likely illegal as well), the situation may be different, but usually you would require a VAT number and other businesses would have a means to check it, but this might also vary across jurisdictions.
