In my usage (and US norms), tracks in agricultural/forestry usage, and similar do not imply public accessibility. I think the root of the problem, besides overloading too many concepts into tags, is that service has two subtypes: things that are not public/legal roads, like driveways (and some alleys) public alleys, which are legal rights of way, usually with a sign "Public Alley 4309", but are too small to seem like a regular road. But legally they are like a regular road. The fix is to add highway=alley, for things that are too small but nevertheless fit the legal definition of a road, and then have service be for "place you can drive that is not a legal road". An alternative is to document that highway=service service=alley is a legal road, and special among service.
