In my understanding nudism:yes is less specific, it's simply a beach where
people take their clothes off, but the legal status is unknown.

Let's see a few examples:
- Is it designated by the (local) government and advertised by the tourist
board as a nude beach? -> :designated
- Is it within a resort and nudity is obligatory? -> :obligatory
- Is it just a beach where nudists usually go, not advertised,
they only know about it by word of mouth? -> :customary
- Is it a regular beach, but no one cares if you undress and sometimes
people do? -> :permissive (or :optional)

Nudism:yes can be the first three.

I really like your idea to change :permissive to :optional, it reminds me
of the term "clothing optional" and this is what I think :permissive means.
