IMVHO, documentation improvement and some sort of formalization is
* I had asked the same question here before in the same terms
("appointment") and it is asked again
* I had overlooked "on appointment" 10 times in a page that states
rules in examples "to be grasped"
<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_hours> does not
contain the word "comment" and, as I read before, mappers don't have
15 min to spend reading the full specification down to the end
* comments should be explained in the syntax, including explicitly
that they're used to be displayed on user screen, because this
example doesn't seem to be the case : /"on appointment"; PH off "But
not on public holidays (always closed). You don’t need to write this
comment for values in OSM. Documentation purpose only."/"
* and probably add "by schedule (see Web page)" for scheduled occurrences
* I've had a look at Osmand and, albeit they show opening-hours, they
will *not* show opening_hours="by appointment".
* if Osmand did not understand the doc, there *is* a problem (IMVHO)
* I first wanted to improve my "simplified syntax" with this, but as I
was scolded for writing it and as as it got erased, I will let you
