For what it's worth, I'd expect something like highway=service but with
an broken/dashed orange casing.  Essentially like osmarender does it,
only with a broken/dashed casing.

While we're discussing mapnik, I'd also like to see street names
rendered for highway=tertiary at a more distant zoom, say around z14.

Rendering residential street names at z14, where they'll fit within the
street length, might also be good.
