Changed the subject since that question forks in another direction.

As with other temporary restrictions (blocked roads, speed limits),
first some discretion should be applied how long the restriction will
last and if it is worthwhile to be mapped (e.g. years yes, days no)

Secondly the start and prospective end date should be noted so that
somebody else can clear it if the restriction is gone.

There is a proposal for temporary features here:
(as said above I would not support to map short-time events as in
the proposal's example of a 6 hour demonstration)
