Hi Gerd

My problem is relating to car routing and highway=service where no
explicit access is specified, 

For driveways I set access=private.

For others, it is debatable as to what to do:
1/ Nothing.
   This can allow routing through somewhere entirely inappropriate.
2/ Always set access=destination.
   This will stop through routing that could be allowed/efficient.
3/ only set access=destination if there seems to be a barrier.

Any of these can still lead to the problem with new Garmin routing algo
using a footpath, but 2/ makes it more likely to happen. Where the
destination is truly in the service area it is easy to check the last
steps of the chosen route to detect this problem.

My later logic transforms the access into combinations of
