[Tagging] Maxtents=<number> or capacity:tents=<number> for campsites?

Some users specify the number of tents or caravans allowed at a
campsite or camp pitch with tents=<number> and caravans=<number>, but
more frequently these are specified with capacity:caravans=<number>,
capacity:tents=<number> or maxtents=<number>

Currently maxtents=* is used most frequently and it's the shortest
key, but there is no equivalent tag for carvans other than
capacity:caravans=* - and also, the majority of maxtents= tags are
"maxtents=yes" - and I don't understand what this could mean.

So I'm thinking that capacity:tents=# and capacity:caravans=# would be
the least ambiguous option, along with tents=yes/no and

These tags could be used with tourism=camp_pitch, tourism=camp_site
and tourism=caravan_site, and perhaps with other accommodation
features which also offer tent or caravan (RV/Motorhome) sites.


(Sorry for all the questions, but I would like to develop a full
proposal for additional property tags to be used with this feature and
with camp_site / caravan_Site)
