If you add wrong information in the most prominent spot in a very popular article, one can expect two outcomes:
(1) someone might correct the mistake
(2) people start tagging the wrong way
In the last two months, only (2) happened.

Yes, that was me, in reaction to (2).

Okay, here is a (probably incomplete) list:
- "open" and "closed" appear to be some new invention
- the meaning of "off" is wrong
- daily, weekly, monthly don't exist in that form. It is perfectly valid to combine them, e.g.
  Apr-Oct Mo-Fr 07:00-20:00

> I know that the diagram is wrong […]

…and you don't mind that mappers follow the wrong diagram?
