[Tagging] service:car for car shops and repair

Then, to make matters more confusing, there is the discrepancy between the
tagging for shop=bicycle and shop=motorcycle offered in the JOSM presets
under Transport. Note that the motorcycle tagging offers in addition to
yes/no, "brand" as a value for sale, rental, repair, parts, and clothes.
Also, there is a fourth very strange value offered for repair and parts,
"old_timer", whatever the hell that is. It's a very messy system

name=Bike Shop
service:bicycle:cleaning=yes
service:bicycle:diy=yes
service:bicycle:pump=yes
service:bicycle:rental=yes
service:bicycle:repair=yes
service:bicycle:retail=yes
service:bicycle:second_hand=yes
shop=bicycle


brand=BMW
clothes=yes
name=BMW Motorcycle Shop
opening_hours=24/7
parts=brand
rental=yes
repair=no
safety_inspection=no
sale=yes
second_hand=only
services=Note for service information
shop=motorcycle
wheelchair=yes

The tag we're discussing now, service:bicycle:xx, is the form used for
bicycle shops but services="text description" is used for motorcycle shops.
The "services" tag is a mess as well IMO (see Taginfo
<http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/search?q=services%3D>) and I think its
use for motorcycle service is a mistake at best. Having such disagreement
and ambiguity built into JOSM makes the present situation difficult to
resolve at best.
