One thing that is in common between those examples is that the thing in
question doesn't move, it's a fixed location. People move around, so you
might want to emphasize if someone is in a location for a while (i.e.,
using the* -taH*), whereas the restaurant or bathroom probably isn't going
anywhere. Are there more examples where the thing that is in a place is a
fixed feature rather than a person or ship or the like?
