In the same way that opening a cupcake shop in a neighborhood forces people to gain weight? Sounds rather tenuous.

This doesn't make any sense.

In DC, even though a lot of buildings have parking minimums (more than you'd think), some new developers are applying for exemptions to the parking minimums because the costs associated with building parking infrastructure within the current built environment are prohibitively high - often requiring strict adherence to a variety of zoning and historic preservation laws.

So if lots of developers don't want to build parking, and people won't use the parking (I assume that's what you mean with the cupcake comment), then what is the argument for keeping a regulation that now serves no purpose but to increase permitting hassle and costs for people?

Seems to me you've just argued around me that there's no reason for them in the first place.
