[Tagging] More about parking

Here in Denmark it is quite common that a street has parking "slots"  
that can be either perpendicular or at a 45 degree angle to the  
street. These slots can sometimes be on both sides of the street. They  
are marked with lines painted on the pavement.

Any idea on how to tag these? (I can submit a photo if the description  
above is incomprehensible.)

Another thing is: parking parallel to the street. I've seen this on  
streets everywhere I've been in the world. In my opinion it is  
valuable information to have on the map, for one thing the parked cars  
narrows the street considerably, for another, the street is wider than  
usual and it should be rendered as such.

Again, the parking can be on the left and/or right sides of the  
street, so this needs to be included in the tagging scheme.

Any ideas?
