Yes, positive Martin, thank you, but not quite.
The best idea is in fact below it: highway=layby, if I understand it
correctly as a place where you can *safely* get off the road to stop for
whatever reason. But this extremely good idea has apparently been shot
dead by a noer.
There's a problem in wanting to make precise categories for everything.
If a tagger doesn't find one, he won't tag. However, laybies where one
can stop are important to know, instead of stopping in an unsafe place
when a safe one exists 100 m further round the bend.  And there are many
ones worth the name rest_area much less than this one.
