Good that we are on the same page.

I would keep highway=service as they are (0x07), because they are 
usually driveways, parking aisles or alleys where the practical maxspeed 
is lower than on residential streets (which are 0x06). Also, some 
highway=service are private driveways to properties. I think that 
anything on 0x06 or 'bigger' road types should generally be public
