"bath" als alleinstehendes Wort bedeutet sowohl (Bade-)Wanne, als auch Bad(-ezimmer).

Es ist ja nett, dass du das Wörterbuch erweitern möchtest, aber schau mal hier:
Dictionary: bath tub

Außerdem ist es sinnvoll, die Hinweise im großen, roten Kasten zu befolgen, da sonst eh nichts aufgenommen wird.

I support adding bath [Brit.] - Badewanne as long as REAR (#0) provides a few more sources.

My OED gives the meaning 'bath = bathroom' as 'chiefly N. Amer'.

I don't think it's ever used in this sense in BE (except perhaps in estate agents' or hotel-keepers' jargon)

#3: I don't think it's ever used in this sense in BE (except perhaps in estate agents' or hotel-keepers' jargon)

I agree with every single word of that. In the UK, "bath" as an abbreviation of "bathroom" is probably mostly found in property adverts (sales and lettings), where space is often at a premium.

What do you think about my #2?

In what country?
Not in Britain, surely. If someone says "I'm in the bath", then they are in the bathtub, not (just) in the bathroom. In Britain, the bathroom is called the bathroom AFAIK.
