Some definitely do consider street parking to be a "lane", see 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:parking:lane for elaborate

With all the talk about drawing road kerbs as ways, I imagine a proposal 
to encode street parking info as properties of the kerb (rather than of 
the street) will be forthcoming.
