[Tagging] Marking temporary traffic organisation change

Sometimes traffic organization changes for some time - road becomes temporarily oneway,
or oneway road becomes accessible in both direction.

Obviously short term traffic organisation changes (for hours/days) are generally not
worth mapping, though one may use oneway:conditional / access:conditional for that.

But sometimes change is applied for months or longer, as it is related to closure of road.

For example road around
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.04484&mlon=19.94562#map=19/50.04484/19.94562 <https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.04484&mlon=19.94562#map=19/50.04484/19.94562&layers=N>
are closed for reconstruction, what is covered by highway=construction.

But there are also other changes
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/25029841#map=19/50.04537/19.94788 <https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/25029841#map=19/50.04537/19.94788>
become oneway=no.

How one may mark that such change is temporary?

It would be useful for at least two reasons:
- it would easier to catch roads for retagging after road recontruction completes
- it would be possible to skip such roads in some QA checks - for example that road has
cycleway=opposie_lane, oneway:bicycle=no with oneway=no what would usually indicate
some mistake - but here it is a result of temporary change so validators should not complain

Is there some existing tag for that? If not - what would be a good name for that?
temporary_traffic_organisation=yes is awful
