"I have no problem to additionally add amenity=place_of_worship or
appropriate tag to the area."


It is absurd to tag parking as amenity=place_of_worship or include it in
this area - it is not a place
of worship. Maybe landuse=religious has problems, but it is a better
solution for cases like this.
