Please see 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/more_parking.

To summarize: I am proposing the following:

- To codify / make official the de-facto parking_space=disabled
- To allow mapping motorcycle parking as part of a unified parking lot, 
by introducing parking_space=motorcycle and capacity:motorcycle
- To add the additional parking space types 'compact' and 'takeaway'

See https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/830096097 for an example of 
parking_space=motorcycle being used in anger. See also 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=38.51676&mlon=-77.29554 (open in an 
editor and check the Mapbox imagery) for another, even better example of 
where splitting what most people would almost surely call a single lot 
into separate amenity=parking and amenity=motorcycle_parking would be 
silly. The same lot also has an example of a space that is obviously 
compact-cars-only (by virtue of being not quite 15' long, vs. a more 
typical 18'+).

See https://goo.gl/maps/ePTDv7U4LnieFoor7 for an example of takeaway 
parking.

Question: should we also overload parking_space=takeaway for "parking" 
spaces reserved for curbside pickup? Should we also add a different type 
for those? Or should we simply not map those, or map them in some manner 
totally different from how parking spaces are mapped?
