It certainly can be documented as used tag 2k+ uses is certainly enough for that.

But I would note that

maxspeed:conditional looks like the best one. It is a generic tag, and it would be harder to miss
by someone processing data than maxspeed:seasonal:winter (though it would need special
support from someone processing data).
