Until I took a look at the github issue you raised, I thought your proposal
was totally
incomprehensible.  Having read the github issue I now think it impractical
and unworkable.

Computerized data consumers like apps can handle it.  Mappers and people
using the map
query tool will not find it so easy.  It doesn't cope with seasonal hours
well if there are more
than two divisions in the year.  Mappers may end up revising the yearly
entry when they should
have modified the other entry and vice versa.
