No, it should be equated with transfering private costs (i.e., a developer's cost to provide at least some off-street parking) to the public sphere,

Except, if you mandate parking, those are not private costs.

And they are not private costs anyway, since those costs merely get passed on to the rest of us through higher prices.

The public pays for all this parking one way or another. The question is if we want the users of that parking to pay more in line with the share they use, or if we continue to overbuild and push the costs of doing so on the rest of our citizens.
