I hope you're open to rescinding this proposal.

This data is too transient to be of benefit within the OSM database. The 
poor implemented & negligibly maintenance of opening hours is a good 
example as to why it shouldn't be added.

The numerous Public Transport schemas are a mess. Their problems need 
sorting out, not adding to. From what I've seen, most of PT's tags are 
duplicates of other which are already established & work well. See 

'stop_areas' are a pig's ear of incomprehensibility. Even those who 
conceived it appear uncertain as to its scope.
