[HOT] Seasonal or Intermittent

Hi,

I'm just updating part of LearnOSM 
(http://learnosm.org/en/coordination/remote-tracing/), and need to 
clarify which is the correct tag for a stream, river or other feature 
that is only present for part of the year. My initial understanding was:
seasonal=yes as per http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:seasonal

But I started altering this a little while ago due to a conversation on 
this mailing list, and was using
intermittent=yes  as per http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:intermittent

However, Highway Tag Africa 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Highway_Tag_Africa#Seasonal_roads 
goes with seasonal=yes

I don't mind which we go with, but it would be good if we advocated the 
same one, although I'm sure software writers, GIS experts and map makers 
can easily cater for either tag.

Regards
