If someone wants to map them they can. Not up to you or me to dictate 
what can go into OSM.

It it easy enough to find some of them here .. most public phone boxes 
have them together with visual signs to let you know of the service.
If you have meet the requirements then having the information in OSM 
enables you to make your own map of the service.

Some think mapping private swimming pools should not be done. Yet in my 
country these are used to fight fires and as such form a usefull public 
emergency resource.

I suppose you don't map private houses, private farms, private roads 
(driveways) etc etc...
There  many 'private' things already present in OSM.
