[Tagging] How to tag a "overhead electronic display" ?

well, in the meantime I found a tag highway=overhead_road_sign, but I think this is just another

case of putting to much information into one tag value.

My understanding is that we should try to avoid that, esp. for

rather rare objects.

So, this could be something like

traffic_sign=display (or intermittend, variable, ?)

I think we'd have to invent a tag.  I only know them to be called a "programmable changeable message sign", so I'd probably tag it traffic_sign=pcms

Any ideas (which do not invent a new highway tag)?
