[Tagging] amenity=tourist_bus_parking

Hi,

Real case in Paris, we have : bicycle parking, motorcycle parking,
bicycle-motorcycle parking mixed, free floating (dock less)
scooter-bicycle parking, and cargo bike parking.
How can I map that with only motorcycle_parking and bicycle_parking
tags ??? I can't properly.
Using access tags is the good way to go, so we can use
[vehicle]=yes/no/designated.
Designated is to explicitly say that the place is specifically made for them.

In the point of view of a data consumer, adding tags just for each
(sub) use case is a maintenance nightmare, and most will not update
there software for each case.
If you render a map for instance, the first step would be to render
every parking area the same way, then may be you'd go into detail and
render each type of them.

Another frequent situation are motorway stations where parking is usually split into cars, busses, and HGVs.
