Great idea, this is much simpler to implement and manage indeed, at
the cost of making the language slightly more complicated.

I think having to differentiate between service and non-service users
when deleting is somewhat of an edge case, which a STRICT modifier can
address - so how about:

  DELETE STRICT USER -> delete user only if it's NOT a service user
  DELETE STRICT SERVICE USER -> delete user only if it's a service user
  DELETE USER -> delete both service and non-service user
  DELETE SERVICE USER -> same but deprecated, indicated by an INFO log

In all cases there's no failure if the target user doesn't exist, as
in the current version.
