No. building=carport describes a particular building style, which is 
common enough to justify a more special tag than =roof.

Amenity should not be used for private places; only public and 
semi-public (customers, visitors etc) are an amenity. That is already 
reflected in the proposal, end should be more emphasized.

Rendering does not matter for tagging.

However I agree with Yves that this is an unambiguous value, in use 
already 2k times, so it should simply be documented.
