If a speedlimit is bound to a area and not just to a way it should be tagged with maxspeed=* and zone:maxspeed=*.

The form for the values is <country-code>:<limit-name>". While it is similar to zone:traffic=* it should not be confused with it. I.e. a 30-zone can be in a rural or a urban traffic-zone.

Country-codes should be upper-case.

In Germany maxspeed-zones apply to all vehicles while maxspeed-signs only apply to motorized-vehicles.
