[Tagging] how to care about different seasonal road close?

You might use the "seasonal" key, which seems like it might already be used
to indicate if a highway is open or closed seasonally.  I can't find a
proposal for that use.

This could be seasonal=spring;summer;autumn

There are 54,768 instances of seasonal=yes, which seems fairly useless
unless you are referring to natural phenomenon (streams).

However, I wouldn't count on routing software to recognize this key.  It
would be nice if the software would warned you that this route might be
closed for the season.

I would use that tagging scheme at your own risk.
