[Tagging] fixme -- by a specific date

The seasonal tag[1] already exists for very general 'seasonal availability'
of features.  This works for a very rough approximation of actual
availability which may be enough for some use cases. This could (should?)
be used as a fallback. What I am after is a higher fidelity solution that
also goes beyond 'seasonality'. What do you think?
