[Tagging] Feature Proposal – RFC – Dynamic maxspeed

I think that misses the point a little.  maxspeed=signals/variable is
useful, but becomes more useful with maxspeed:maximum=n and
maxspeed:minimum=n.  North American school zones are probably the best
example.  maxspeed:maximum=65 mph, maxspeed:minimum=45 mph,
maxspeed=signals would be a fairly accurate example for school zones around
an Oklahoma high school in a rural area (in which the lower speed is in
effect when signals are flashing).
