Be careful. I think some "public" carparks, e.g. multi-storey parking,
open 24 hours a day, charging a fee, run by a private business, are

I do agree that a convention for parking should be specified. But I
DON'T think we should use access=permissive simultaneously with two

1) (wiki definition) privately owned land, for example by a business,
with general access allowed to anyone
2) (the proposed parking-specific definition) access allowed to customers
