The issue with this is that basically this is the definition of
highway=service already without any extra tags: It provides access to
something. Be it the rear/side of buildings (alley), the garage of a
house (driveway), the fuel dispensers on a filling station
(drive-through) or to the individual parking spaces on a parking

Maybe service=property_access would be a little more clear. Of course,
strictly speaking, pretty much all the above are also "properties". Is
there a word in English that would describe more accurately those kind
of hmm, bigger properties, like industrial and commercial parks,
hospital grounds etc etc (as mentioned in an earlier post)?
