service=parking seems like a good idea
to me

> * service=emergency_access
> * service=drive-through

>>
>> service=driveway -> also used for access to multiple businesses (like in an industrial estate, etc)
>>
>> service=driveway/drive-through -> >> Service way for access to a fuel station

> Are there any other main understood uses of no service=? tag that would need an appropriate service=? tag to fill this gap?

> Once I've got some good starting feedback from this forum, I plan on revising > https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/service%3Dparking>  to include any new appropriate service=? (not just service=parking) tagging and start the formal RFC process.
