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.
