I am talking about parking lots which are explicitly in front of the 
chapel on the cemetery ground. Not some "Random single parking spaces

This is why i dispute the broad claim in the wiki article that parking
lots are excplitly to be excluded from cemeterys. As this thread showed
this is not the way it is used, and from my perspective its a pretty
strange difference to other landuse type.

And from the formal perspective. This change should at least be result
of a discussion on this list. This has only been added "recently" in
OSM perspective.
