like written before: either they are features (i.e. traffic signs) and then
worth putting them into OSM or they are POI points somewhere in the middle
of a way that has a certain maxspeed restriction, than they are pretty
useless IMHO (they don't tell you neither the direction of the speed limit,
nor the start or end), and I'd not import them. You could put them in OSB
to encourage people to do a survey for speed limits there (but even that
has limited usefulness).
