Not the convention but A convention.  More precisely, an option:

whether any spaces are available, versus the exact number.

There's a benefit to knowing if there are/are not disabled spaces available
rather than not knowing at all.
But if you know the number it's far better to use that rather than "yes."

Combining `capacity:disabled=5` with `capacity:disabled:ramp=4` would imply

That was what I had in mind.  Because capacity:disabled=5 and
capacity:disabled:ramp=yes would imply
they all have room for a ramp, which may not be the case (and it's probably
better to give the number for ramps
anyway, so there is no ambiguity).  Leaving room for a ramp means less room
for parking in general, so you
might get 5 disabled spaces and only 2 with room for ramps.
