the problem with a route will be that others have to deal with it when
modifying the road geometry, and it will be almost impossible to do it
without the descriptions. I also agree that the route data is not of
primary (or secondary ;-) ) interest to osm. Instead you could add an
attribute to the roads whether there is winter service or not. This is
already done somewhere, e.g. with the tag "gritting"
and with the tag "winter_service"
