suggesting creation of
capacity:senior=n and capacity:priority=n
and maybe 
access=disabled for service roads / gates


Talking about stuff missing from http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:capacity <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:capacity>

We all know about the capacity:disabled=n extension on the disability key, but there are other very common parking types that are not represented. 

Usually large parking lots for big public retail, commercial, and now some government business offer separate “elderly” & “pregnant woman” parking, which is separate and (sometimes legally) different from disabled parking. sometimes this is separate and sometimes this is grouped together, as “priority” - which would be a more flexible value - and similar to the Japanese “priority seat” values http://sandierpastures.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/priority-seat-train-in-Japan-550x412.jpg <http://sandierpastures.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/priority-seat-train-in-Japan-550x412.jpg> 

Also, there are parking lots for motorcycles / scooters, but there is no separate standardized and documented motorized cycle parking key and/or no capacity:scooter/moped/motobike/=n . In Japan, Bicycle is “jitensha” and scooters are “baiku” (bike), and often separated parking for both.

“baiku” parking north of the driveway, “Jitensha” parking to the south. 

Japan has a “elderly” symbol, which is an optional badge to affix to a car (mandatory over 75) to show that it is an elderly driver, and now is used as a badge for “senior” parking in Japan.  This is separate from truly disabled parking. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreisha_mark <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreisha_mark>

Blue disabled parking and yellow “elderly” parking

We should be able to add capacity:*=n for  “motorcycle” “senior” “and “priority/pregnant” values should be considered. Thoughts? 

Also, disabled parking more and more recently have actual access restrictions - gates and driveways to access separate parking spaces that require some kind of transmitter or a call box for the staff to allow access to lot so only truly disabled people take the special spaces for specialized vehicles. i saw gates blocking individual parking spaces at malls.

Access=disabled would be good for this situation, but even access=customers is not documented on the wiki - which seems very outdated.
