It doesn't say when they'll be repainted ;)

Personally, this is equivalent to a 'note' regarding a certain object
being important but in some obviously categorised way. Perhaps
something like olympics=* or olympics:2012=* ?

There is an indication on the wiki on the venues page of using
2012olympics=*, but a) olympics seems better first b) prefixing is

Maybe values could be "gold2012"... unless there are prefixes in
values? For 'current' colours, postboxes could clearly benefit from a
colour=* tag for if they differ from the national standard?
