One more vote for the Dometic 310 and friends. It's easier to clean that china rather than the plastic used in other models. The hand-held sprayer is nice for clearing away unsightly smears. Also I love that it has an elongated bowl.

If a person has particularly long legs from the knees to the feet, he might choose to put any toilet on a little extra pedestal or step to make it effectively taller.

One more point in favor of the straight-through RV design: the valve can be held open and a sprayer tool inserted directly down into the black tank if it should need to be cleaned. With a residential toilet, removal of the whole toilet would be required. Then again if all is working well this level of cleaning shouldn't be needed..

I am not really clear as to what you are describing but, I don't have kids so I may be missing something.

Once I sit down, gravity pretty well takes care of things. Not really any aiming involved.

I do have some occasions when some users manage to get a little urine in the wrong place but it is infrequent. The only "problem" it causes is that in warm weather I may empty the bucket a bit sooner.

Back to Elliot's comment stating that this is a "very personal thing". What is comfortable for some may not be for others.

I hear that! I've been mulling over the idea of having my grandson clean the toilet the next time so he can see for himself the extra work involved

Good point about hosing out the tank. I use this thing, which connects to a garden hose.
It has a small flange just above the nozzle, which I hook under the edge of the down-pipe while I rotate the nozzle around in the tank. The flange prevents the spray from hitting the inside of the down-pipe and spraying up at me.
And up in the bowl, the larger flange is all splash-guard.

Recently, I broke the tip off by stepping on it. I'm becoming clumsier with age. lol

You can buy such wands, but I customized mine "a little".

As for young boys failing to aim properly.... All my life I have preferred to sit, even "only" to pee, when a clean seat is available.

You have to "aim" to separate liquids and solids...

Not really. I use it just like a regular toilet.

I don't think what you are envisioning matches what I have in my bathroom.

I don't have pics handy but I think I may have posted some last year on this site. Sorry no new pictures. I draw the line when it comes to posting pics of a composting toilet in a "production environment"......

Yeah, I'm thinking my tip-out outhouse isn't going to catch on. A disposal system like the old trains?

I can't believe how much we can talk about poop!, and how to poop and pee lol
well I'll add one more tip bit, if you have a rv toilet you can use spray wax or pam on the inside of the toilet, keeps things from sticking and easy clean, real handy after a night of beer drinking lol
