I noticed that there was a stalled feature proposal originally made by
malenki for winter service tagging, and I'd like to propose the same
myself amended with my proposals.

Currently tagging of winter service is mostly done by the tag
snowplowing=*, but that only covers one aspect of winter service: Winter
service of roads may additionally contain salting, gritting etc., and
the service priority is also worth documenting. The tag winter_service
is also used, although less widely.

The proposed tag is an enhancement to highway=* and can also be used on
amenity=parking etc. It would partially duplicate the meaning of
snowplowing=*, but will provide useful additional information that
doesn't fit the current tag. The tag is also much more descriptive than
the currently used de-facto-tag.

The proposal can be found in

Best regards,
