This is a specific to iD and not a general concern, and simply has to do
with that in a lot of cases iD doesn't actually have presets values for
specific keys and attempts to retrieve them from taginfo. This in turn
leads to a specific taginfo issue that taginfo can't differentiate
between say: the service key used on a highway=service and the service
key used of railway=service.

With other words: it is really not a preset issue.
