Maybe use a tag for "signed"? ie signed:opening_hours=no if they are not 
displayed. Or signed:opening_hours=yes if you want to specify that they 
are actually visible (that could be the default).
As it is a simple boolean value, it can easily be added with a checkbox 
in the editor.

This sort of tag can be used for other attributes, ie signed:name, 
signed:ref, signed:name:fr etc. There already is some use of these tags 
(or the variations name:signed etc).
