But the original wording for service made it something completely
different. Usage in parts of the world seem to contradict this (maybe)
and there might be need for "something even smaller" than unclassified.

IMHO the usage of service for some "official small public road" breaks
the concept of a special way not in the public road network, but on
private property. IMHO service=alley way a bad concept - something
like highway=alley would probably be much better.
