I don't think that this case is a good example to support your argument.
This is a perfectly acceptable addition which does add information -
that it's not a public toilet. You can't just walk in of the street to
spend a penny.
Why is it a problem getting time-stamped? If it doesn't, how would
anybody know it's been edited & able to verify it?
I sometimes get the feeling that people get far too involved in OSM that
they can't see the woods for trees where common sense & logic go out of
