Also part of loops that are never used to carry passengers, right?

Looks correct to me.

What about tracks regularly used for irregular service?
In my city it would be 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.04996&mlon=19.94753#map=18/50.04996/19.94753&layers=N <https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.04996&mlon=19.94753#map=18/50.04996/19.94753&layers=N>

> 4. service=crossover for crossover tracks (where dual-ended trams
> change direction - only use between two main tracks with no service
> tag - otherwise use service tag of the tracks that are connected)
I see no problem here.
