I agree with this, although where feasible I'd rather see
landuse=residential only on the residential sections of the gated community.

Adding community=gated seems redundant.  Just map the wall or fence itself.

... and or add access=private?

I guess you could put access=private on the wall/fence, but isn't that the
default?  I'd definitely put access=private on all the roads, parking
spaces, parks, etc.

Anyway I would suggest to map the extent of the gated area by adding

Yeah, definitely.
