I strongly disagree with changing service=rest_area to highway=rest_area, 
since the way service=rest_area is used is quite different from the definition 
of highway=rest_area (which I find to be quite crappy). Just changing them will 
basically just mess up things, more than improve them. Adding a single 
highway=rest_area node at each occurence of service=rest_area is another 
matter though and in fact already has been done in a number of cases.
