While I agree that mapping singular parking spaces is a valid desire,
I don't agree with the proposed tagging. To avoid confusion (and for
simplicity) I'd encourage to use a new tag for single lots. It is
ridiculous to add capacity=1, and other subtags on every single
parking space inside a bigger parking area. Instead amenity=parking
would be used for the whole parking facility and another (new) tag
like parking=lot (or whatever english wording is suitable) would be
used to indicate single spaces.
