Isn't a highway=services already for HGV ? 

The issue I ran into is highway=services that are not on a motorway (a Japanese road station) - but how does a facility "cater to" HGV and cyclists at the same time? I know I can get rest and food at a highway=services  along a trunk road, but it is a place not tailored to cyclists. The Cycle_service_area that led me to think of this tag doesn't even have a single designated car parking spot! 

The other issue is that highway=service_area already has an automatic redirect page to highway=services on the wiki. Creating this tag value is probably a bad idea. 

Considering motor_vehecles have highway=services, creating 3 tags: cycle_service_area, foot_service_area and bridle_service_area would match the three types of current non-motor ways.

I am unsure that is is the best idea, but the idea of matching the existing _path types seems proper.
