I have updated the wiki page with that recommendation.

Indeed, after I sent my first message, I found that there are many cases 
of similar service roads that exist only to take you off the street and 
lead you to something else: entrances/exits from caravan sites, 
hospitals emergency areas, etc.

Should we propose something like `service=entrance`, `service=exit` 
(oneway roads) and `service=access`?
