I’ve been looking at speed limit tagging and have found a number of subkeys which are really sort of conditions:
maxspeed:seasonal:winter, and I have a proposal to deprecate it in process)
Would it be best to advise against their use in favour of
I think so, as checking lots of keys, and even knowing that they exist, is more complex than using one key, both for mappers and data consumers.
An issue with
flashing is that those are not conditions that navigation software could know anything about, other than maybe taking a best guess on whether or not it’s school time. But the same could be said for however they are tagged.
These tags all seem to have been only used in a few small areas, and in batches (looking at tag history) and so do not have wide acceptance or use. Also, the use of all of them started before
maxspeed:conditional was established.
I have added them to the wiki page for
maxspeed:conditional as possible tagging mistakes but then realised that it should probably have a discussion.
