What tags are commonly used to mark the highway=service way that provides access to single-entry parking lots with a single aisle? (example)

I think a case could be made for all of:

  • highway=service with no sub-tag
  • service=driveway
  • service=parking_aisle

In this situation I would tend to tag it highway=service & service=parking_aisle.

If the road leading to the lot were longer there may be some justification for splitting it at the boundary and only putting the aisle tag on the inner portion, but in this case it doesn't look to be much longer than the end bits bounded by planters on many larger lots and those are routinely tagged as part of the aisle.
