[Tagging] Service road - Can it be a driveway if serving multiple houses?

I live in a single family home with a shared driveway.  The next door 
neighbor house is 7 meters from my house.  The driveway is about 10 
meters shared, then it splits, about 10 meters to each garage.    If it 
were mapped, I think it should be tagged as driveway, but I don't think 
it's relevant to map.

When roads are leading to several properties I would use at least service without the driveway qualifier, or residential.
