hi!

I've found "garage" only being mentioned on somehow outdated, yet informative
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Editing_quick_reference

Not sure what was meant by that. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garage or
http://www.google.com/search?q=define%3Agarage

It is those public covered parking places
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parking_garage ), that we're currently
tagging same as open parking space (amenity=parking). It might be good
to distinguish them on maps as there usually is a big difference in
pricing and vacancy.

amenity=garage might be confusing with repair shops.
do namespaces work? amenity=parking:garage
a new tag? amenity=parking_garage
or combination with class? amenity=parking, class=garage

Rendering would be similar as parking, blue square with white P, with
a styled roof over it (^).
