Please note that the vote is as I can see it for merging the functionality into the existing “maxspeed:conditional” key.

In the voting section there was some comment considering the possibility to use date ranges instead, but after digging a bit I felt that it might not be a good solution:

So in my personal opinion it would be ideal if the information on switching dates were available as open data. Then routing software finding the @winter syntax could use country-specific open data sources to show the correct speed limits.
