I see no requirement that service ways like I'm modeling be
physically separated by some sort of barrier. I have mapped hundreds of
service roads that have no physical separation from the highways they
intersect, abut, or run parallel to. The Wiki defines service roads in
general terms only and it seems like these turnouts would fit into the Wiki

SelfishSeahorse raises a point about different definitions of "slow moving"
then asks whether it should be our problem. No, it isn't nor is it
important for this discussion.
