You have never been camping in Germany. Some camp sites are regimented, 
you are allocated a site/pitch on registering, yes for a tent!

Adels Grove in Queensland also dictates a site... and so does Lawn Hill 
NP site. And there are NP sites in Tassie that do the same, booked sites 
for tents.

So capacity:tents=# and capacity:caravans=# are valid things for camp 

Camp pitches of larger size, with smaller tents ??? I'd leave it to the 
mapper, if they want they can add the tag.
