What is that even supposed to mean? A data structure does not differentiate between "fixed" and "non fixed" keys, but just stores them as strings, and therefore treats "maxspeed" and "maxspeed:(22:00-06:00)" exactly the same.

You do realize that conditions are part of the context as well, and your argument therefore is in favour of conditions inside keys?
