As I read it, Wikipedia:rest_area encompasses both highway=services and
highway=rest_area. The highway=rest_area page was created by an
Australian, and I suspect it reflects the situation in (Eastern)
Australia*. It links to "Wikipedia:rest area#Australia. There are
similar non-service rest areas in other countries of course - lots in
the US, and there's at least one in the UK.
I'd say the wikipedia links are about right as thet are

Australia last year. Bottle-shops, plenty...
