How to tag the vehicles that fit in the parking place?

A bus or truck needs significantly more space for both standing and manoeuvring compared to a passenger car.
If there is no established way, is there some proposal?

In the early days one would have just said "add hgv=yes, bus=yes". There's actually 2233 objects tagged with both "amenity=parking" and "hgv=*", so I'd suggest using that.

Some are using Proposed_features/parking:lane syntax also for areas. If the area is only allowed for buses and hgv's, that would be parking:condition:area:vehicles=hgv;bus or parking:condition:vehicles=hgv;bus

I have seen that, but it does not look very active...
Thanks anyway.
