I think the idea of an amenity is that it is useful for the public at large or the community as a whole. Something in your back yard might be an amenity to you personally, but not so much to a wider audience.
man_made=* is a ridiculous tag anyway, as its only function is to distinguish objects from natural things. Everything is either natural, or it's man-made (what about animal-made things like beaver dams?) Is a lake any less a lake because it was dug by hand? Some man-made things are not "useful" in my definition of the word - artworks for example. They are far from pointless, but I wouldn't call them "useful".
