Perhaps I am misunderstanding your question.

  * valid users specifies who can connect at all.
  * read list speicifies that the following user will 
    only have read access.
  * write list specifies those users with write permission

In your fourth case, in the absence of a 'valid users' 
parameter, the User1 would be able to connect to the 
Service2 and will have whatever the default access is
(assuming the user is not listed explictly in either 
read/write list).

Perhaps I did not answer you question, or explain it 
very well.  Send me mail offline if I missed the boat.
