This is not really working. There are highway=track with heavy traffic.
With high number of passages of logging trucks every day, 
at least during logging season.
There are highway=service service=driveway
not used even once for months or years.

Maybe in some places, but not generally.

"regular road network" could be defined a bit better. But they are nor part of it
(for example garage and driveway and home is also connected to 
"regular road network without being part of it).

> Alternately, it might imply that these are private (as opposed to public) roads, but that is also often not true.
It is not about this, or at least it should not be about this.
