The seasonal=yes says it is non perennial all by it self.

You're interpreting seasonal as being a specific case of intermittent:
sometimes there is water
and sometimes there isn't; the water is present (for example) in summer but
not other times of year.

Try this alternative interpretation which is meaningful: there is water
there in summer but not
at other times of year however, even in summer, that flow is intermittent.

That, i think, would make such a combination meaningful.  Not necessarily
how people
would interpret it without further explanation, which would be an argument
against such
use, but meaningful.
