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?

I never said that there was a good argument for parking minimums. I was simply addressing your argument that parking minimums force people to drive.

That developers are applying for exemptions to parking minimums is not necessarily evidence that people would not use the parking if it were provided for them. It could be, and often is, just evidence that the developer does not want to spend money on expensive parking infrastructure if it doesn't have to, i.e., if it can fill the development with people who don't drive.
