Good explanation, I like this. However there is still the opening hours.
How would you use it on a map? Would you make a dynamic map in which only
amenities that are open *now* are drawn? If data like this was wrong, it
would be a disaster! Amenity visibilty would be tampered with by simply
editing its opening hours!

Now I'm probably exaggerating, but the point is that opening hours is the
same kind of "OpenAmenityDirectory" information as links to web pages are.
You can't use it geographically to make a map about opening hours.
