I find both the key and the value used problematic.
The value because it is so close to service that there is a great risk 
of not seeing the difference between the 2 for those who fill in the 
fields by hand.
for the key because an area providing services would be better described 
with a amenity or leisure key. if I understand well, highway=services is 
not a highway. although there are many historic values of highway=* that 
are not a highway, I will take advantage of this opportunity to avoid 
creating/tune new highway=* and organize it in a more coherent way.
