? Abuse opening_hours by 'introducing' free form text? It is allowed, so
not an introduction nor an abuse.
I was not aware that condition allowed free form text. Both tags are
poorly documented for this on the wiki.

Some roads are closed in winter but this could be applied as either
seasonal or conditional depending on the mapper.

Would be usefull to do a tag info search for the more popular one and
then document it on the wiki.
