At least I can see a pattern:
In the cases where highway=service,service=rest_area, the tags have been
added to a way representing a physical road which acts as the rest area
- i.e. the rest area is only the road itself.
In cases where highway=rest_area has been used, the rest area is not
only the road itself, but also its surroundings.
I can see on taginfo that service:rest_area is only used on 811 objects
worldwide, so obviously it should be eliminated. I see three possibilities:
a) Remove service=rest_area from the way and add a point with
b) Remove service=rest_area from the way and draw a new way as an area
around the road.
c) Simply change them to highway=service_area.
As for c), I am not sure whether the road will then be rendered as a
road. Of course, we should not tag for the renderer, but what is the
semantic meaning of highway=rest_area,area=no?
Is it a road, or something resembling landuse?
As for b), the area will be artificial in that it is only the road
itself that is a rest area. It would be like making a closed way with
amenity=parking around a strech of road with parking lanes.
So what would teh correct solution be?
(Another issue is that some areas marked with highway=rest_area have not
been tagged area=yes as they should be).
