That second pair of examples.  Ugh!

I think I'd try mapping them as a single parking lot and add parking
spaces.  Even though we don't currently have a way of tagging
motorcycle spaces, the relative sizes would give a clue.

Alternatively, two separate parking lots combined as a multipolygon.
In this case I'd alter the outline of the motorcycle lot so that it shared
a common way segment with the main lot rather than having that
peculiar shape.  I'd put that arbitrary line sort of equidistant from
motorcycle spaces and car spaces, adjusted may so it delineates
where cars can't (or wouldn't) go.
