Oh, you seem to have a different use case for the add_poi feature. I was 
thinking that I do not necessarily want to have a POI for certain areas, 
say, amenity=school & name!=* or amenity=parking & access=private. You 
seem to not want a polygon for features for which POIs are to be 
generated. The add_poi action would help also there: just tell mkgmap to 
create the POI but not the polygon. For instance, do not create a 
polygon for amenity=recycling or tourism=lean_to, but just the POI.
