I think that is what has happened. Especially as we have a tag
for service areas (known as "rest areas" in the US). We have a
cultural/language problem in that USAians wanted to map their
service areas, which they know as rest areas, and found a tag
for rest areas.

Not everybody else. I agree with your interpretation. We can
be confused together.
Of course, even if everyone else becomes as confused as
we are, that leads us to a lot of mistagged service areas
in the US. Or we decide that rest area tagging outside
the US has to be replaced with a new tag to mean "just
a place for resting without services and probably no toilet."
Either way, a lot of re-tagging.
