I don't like it either. In Germany and Italy service roads are non-roads
(parking_aisle and driveway) or very small roads (alley) or service roads
(restricted roads for service access to motorways, factories, ecc.). A
normal road in the city without pavements would be a residential or
unclassified (if not higher rated, and according to the zone).

Maybe I missed something, but your definition is also quite far from what is
documented in the wiki: "Generally for access to a building, motorway
service station, beach, campsite<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Camp_site>,
industrial estate, business park, etc.
This is also commonly used for access to parking, driveways, and alleys. "
