Can we revisit pool eligibility?

The November 2020 AMA stated that “private residences or hotels (or other similar residentially-focused locations)” are not eligible. There is a very pervasive belief that apartment complex pools, even ones that are publicly accessible, are not eligible because they are “residentially-focused.”

This seems strange to many people, since tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, gazebos, and even pergolas in the pool area are commonly accepted, but people maintain that the pool is not.

I know Nia has flip-flopped on pools in the past, but as stated in the same question, public pools are acceptable, so aren’t apartment pools, which often can be accessed by non-residents, and are even sometimes at a completely different building (an apartment community center/clubhouse).

So are these pools acceptable, as places to exercise and honestly to come together and socialize?
