In my usage (and US norms), tracks in agricultural/forestry usage, and
similar do not imply public accessibility.
I think the root of the problem, besides overloading too many concepts
into tags, is that service has two subtypes:
things that are not public/legal roads, like driveways (and some alleys)
public alleys, which are legal rights of way, usually with a sign
"Public Alley 4309", but are too small to seem like a regular road.
But legally they are like a regular road.
The fix is to add highway=alley, for things that are too small but
nevertheless fit the legal definition of a road, and then have service
be for "place you can drive that is not a legal road".
An alternative is to document that highway=service service=alley is a
legal road, and special among service.
