An interesting point is that of all highway=service only 
4% have an service=alley. So there must be some highway!=service
which carry an service=alley.


37% percent carry an service=* tag

I am assume service=parking_aisle, driveway out of scope. Its pretty
clear what that means.

The question is is a highway=service without service=* a replacement
for an unclassified.

IMHO not
