There are two forms of gate

  • line
  • point

Both of these are supported in the iD editor. Should a service road intersect a gate marked up as a line, at a gate point?

I believe it should, assuming the service road passes through the gate (not just near it). The advice on the wiki seems sensible: "Add a node on the intersection between any footways and the gate, also tagged with barrier=gate, much like how crossings are mapped. (This helps routers as many will just ignore the gate if there is no node)". https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:barrier%3Dgate

Note that only about 1% of "barrier=gate" are mapped as ways, so it's relatively uncommon.
