Fitting between proposed:=* and construction:=* the key/value/prefix
scheduled is used for to-be-built features where all of the following is

* planning is finished
* construction has been approved
* funds have been secured
* start of construction is in the near future

Scheduled can be used as:

* lifecycle prefix (e.g. scheduled:highway=primary)
* status value and key on highways and railways (e.g. highway=scheduled +


The rendering of the proposed=* was dropped from osm-carto in 2015[1]
because of problems with verifiability. Discussion about a stricter defined
value planned followed[2].  But planned has too few semantic differences
compared to proposed and for many does not include secured funding. The
master plan for federal highway construction in Germany
Bundesverkehrswegeplan uses the words "fest disponiert" for projects which
will surely start in the next years. This translates to scheduled. If there
is any better word than scheduled please let me know!
