I'm also quite definitely not an expert Dave :-), but personally, I think
that your highway=service + service=turnout concept may be the easiest,
least messy or complicated way of doing it?

It will render as a road & will show up differently to the highway you're
following, which achieves the aim. It may not be a perfect match for what
is on the ground or the best theoretical solution, but, as an old military
adage put's it "If it's a stupid idea & it works, then it's not a stupid
idea"! :-)
