Sounds great to me. 

If you want to keep service completely exclusive to roads you would find on private property or "behind the entrance gate" kind of roads, then having a sub-tag value that implies public access (service=alley) is not good. 

This would also solve having a road "lower" than unclassified for some particular uses.
