> Joseph Eisenberg:
>> Generally OpenStreetMap data is not updated frequently enough by mappers and database users for us to map temporary states (e.g. anything which lasts less than 6 months). Many database users will download a data extract for offline use and only update this every 3 months or so - see Maps.me for example, and perhaps facebook's  use of OpenStreetMap data.
> I agree.
> But there are some interesting cases around that 6 month range.
> For example we now have access:covid19
> Another example is road work on motorways. That can easily take 6 month to a year. First they do one side and have both directions share the lanes of what was earlier one direction. Then they do the other side.
> Sometimes mappers change the speed limit to e.g. 60 km/h, but usually when the work is finally done, it takes a long time for someone to put it back at 130.
> It would be useful to be able to tag a temporary speed limit with an estimated expiry date. And maybe an estimated start date for offline maps.

motor_vehicle:conditional=no @ (2018 May 22-2018 Oct 7)

This will self-terminate even if nobody will remember to remove tag.
