I believe that opening_hours=none is a bad idea because:

1. It it technically incorrect because the feature does probably have
opening_hours. It just happens to be the case that they are somehow hidden.
2. I am a developer of one of those validators and as you mentioned correctly,
the syntax you proposed is invalid and will cause an error during evaluation. So
all people who try to fix up other peoples opening_hours see this one and try to
fix it but probably can not do this when the opening_hours are also not on the
website (which I assume everyone checks before adding a
opening_hours:status=unmarked or opening_hours=none).


I would go with opening_hours:status=unmarked

Live long and prosper
