I second that. I use the following keys when surveying post boxes:

amenity = post_box
collection_times = …
operator = Royal Mail (only if it's a Royal Mail post box of course)
post_box:type = …
ref = …
royal_cypher = …
source = survey
survey:date = 2015-04-04

I add survey:date to easily find which post boxes haven't been updated
recently, and then try to check their collection times again after one
or two years.
