Joerg-Neo900>>In both JS-001-2012 and MIL-STD-883H the charged human body is modeled by a 100 pF capacitor and a 1500 ohm discharging resistance. During testing, the capacitor is fully charged to several kilovolts (2 kV, 4 kV, 6 kV and 8 kV are typical standard levels) and then discharged through the resistor connected in series to the device under test.<<  I'd not worry much about capacitors00:05
Joerg-Neo900IOW consider them immune to ESD00:06
Joerg-Neo900then OTOH capacitor distance to contact point doesn't change by a relevant amount from placing the ESD as close to contact as possible00:09
Joerg-Neo900and finally you often can place buffer caps on opposite surface of PCB00:09
Joerg-Neo900particularly when you can have multiple vias to reduce their effective parasitic impedance00:10
