There are also springs that are perennial, seasonal, intermittent, etc. Wiki shows those as being mapped as either points or areas.
It might be generally useful to have a tag that can be used for more than just water features. One example: I know of a place where portable toilets and trash bins are located every year for the winter sports season and removed in spring. I don’t know of a way to map those. Opening hours doesn’t work as that is for places that exist all the time but only are open during specified hours. A generic tag indicating when the feature is likely to be present could be used for both water features and other non-water features.
