the wiki (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dparking) 
seems to me quite clear about this, defining "capacity" as "The amount 
of available parking spaces, /including/ all special parking spaces 
(e.g., disabled). Read talk 
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Tag:amenity%3Dparking> page on 

If one has all the available information, I think that the tag 
capacity=* and tags capacity:*=* can and should stay together.
