Interestingly the key:highway wiki page lists unclassified as
the lowest classification of a road:

	"The least most important through roads in a country's system"

So using service as an even lower class road contradicts what has
been in the Wiki for ages.

IMHO service is a special road like a track. Its not part of 
a classification of the public road system but used on mostly
private property - Thats what the wiki says for like 10 years?

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:highway

	"For access roads to, or within an industrial estate, camp site,
	business park, car park etc. Can be used in conjunction with service=*
	to indicate the type of usage and with access=* to indicate who can use
	it and in what circumstances."

So using service as a replacement for a narrow residential or
a small unclassified is mapping for the renderer isnt it?
