In the UK is the Elsan trade name used for both the mobile toilet and the
fixed spot to empty it?
It appears the intent of the elsan_point tag in the UK was the later (

Note the comparable USA term "porta-potty" refers to a portable chemical
toilet with no separate cassette (usually dragged by trailer to events,
construction

I'm not sure which OSM mapped elsan_points are part of the CR&T key system,
but the "network" tag was designed for use by someone who does.
