Hi Lionel,

from what I've understood, the parking_space tag is meant to identify 
exactly one parking space, so the capacity whould be always 1...

In the specific case of parking spaces for disables persons, 
unfortunately there are many way of tagging it... In this issue related 
to the visibility in the OSMand app there are probably almost all of 
them. https://github.com/osmandapp/Osmand/issues/6805

I'm currently using the one that seems to me the simplest one: 
amenity=parking_space + disabled=designated
