[talk-au] Roads in Industrial Estates: Residential, Unclassified or Service?

I've seen that roads in local industrial estates have a mix of tagging.
Some are highway=residential, and some highway=unclassified. I'm referring
to the normal public roads within the industrial estate, and not the other
roads that often go to shared units or behind units.

Tagging them as residential just *seems* wrong to me.

>From the wiki it seems that highway=service is perhaps the most
suitable:  *"For
access roads to, or within an industrial estate, camp site, business park,
car park, alleys, etc. Can be used in conjunction with service=* to
indicate the type of usage and with access=* to indicate who can use it and
in what circumstances."*

An example of an estate with predominantly *highway=unclassified*

A small one that's mostly *highway=residential*
A typical road in this estate

A large estate that's a mix of *tertiary *and *residential*

Roads like this one https://www.mapillary.com/app/?pKey=301424184769146
which don't appear to be public roads, and are usually concrete rather than
asphalt, I would consider to be more clearly service roads. This one
doesn't appear on Vic Map.

What are your thoughts?
