I suggest we use additional tags to specify this more precisely.

I think the lack of supports should be tagged supports=no or bicycle_support=no.
Additionally lock_support=no or lock_stands=12. 
I'm not English so I don't know what would be the best word for these devices. In Danish they are probably called låsestolpe (lock pole) or låsebue (lock bow). In swedish I would call them låsbåge (lock bow) or perhaps låshjälp (lock help).
