[OSM-talk] Render icons for parking areas

I knew about the work around that required us to add an area and a node. I
lot of the time I've been placing that extra node closer to the entrance of
the car park (really useful when the area is alongside more than one road),
sometimes I use a node in the way.
I think it would be better for us to move to more sensible data, the way
we're currently doing is like two carparks (one a node and one an area).
What if it was proposed/passed that a relationship connect the node to the
area but keep rendering how it is. Then after some time when more nodes are
related to their area than seperate, renderers can be updated to do as
"It should certainly be possible to use a relationship to associate
your node with your area, and then have the automatic icon-drawer only draw
an icon at the centre of gravity if there isn't an applicable node
associated with the area via a relationship." -Abi
So even if we don't use the relationship for a long time, it's surley best
to look the future and the best way for things to be done?
I would also propose some sort of public=yes/no/customers tag.
