Service road may have any surface,

not only asphalt. Surface is indicated by

surface tag, not highway tag (except 

highway=motorway that indicates high quality surface).

In a given region some surfaces may be typical for given highway=* value,

but there are no defaults.

This applies to all road types (up to 

highway=motorway sometimes build by private companies,

as a toll roads).

I would always tag access=private for private road rather

than leaving it as supposedly obvious.

What do you mean by "obvious"?

Used for one purpose?
