It's an ambiguous term which in the UK at least could take any of
the meanings under "Vehicles" in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garage
*except* (ironically) "Parking Garage".
In the UK, it is never used for covered public car parking, which
is known as "multistory parking" (or sometimes just "a
multistory"). I agree multistory carparking should be distingushed
from open air parking, and agree your suggested rendering "P with a
^ over" is good, but I think this should be a new key that varies
the existing amenity=parking key, for "backwards compatibility".
It should also distinguish single floor but underground parking.
We perhaps should also have an indication of the total number of
spaces at a location. Any suggestion for key names for these?
I've modified the "Open Issues" section of
reflect the current situation.
