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?


	"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?
