A dead carcass will be deposed of in the Australian bush by animals, 
birds and/or insects.

So, yes your dead body will be eaten in the Australian bush... in some 
places quite quickly. Usually bones and hair will be left behind some of 
it as scat.

As for tagging 'dangerous areas' .. areas that pose danger such as some 
favelas cannot be tagged in OSM. I see the same logic applied to 
dangerous areas caused by wildlife.
