I don't know. Ice roads and lift bridges are temporary too.  Would you 
suggest something like temporary_aeroway=runway? I would not like to 
introduce new tags. temporary=aeroway perhaps (in conjunction with 
aeroway=* and highway=*)

It could be both:

Index: resources/styles/default/lines
--- resources/styles/default/lines	(revision 1652)
+++ resources/styles/default/lines	(working copy)
@@ -8,6 +8,8 @@
  # and http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mkgmap/help/Custom_styles
  # for more information.
+aeroway=runway & highway=* [0x27 resolution 20 continue]
+aeroway=taxiway & highway=* [0x27 resolution 24 continue]
  aeroway=runway [0x27 resolution 20]
  aeroway=taxiway [0x27 resolution 24]

This would duplicate the aeroway objects only if they are also tagged as 
highways. aeroway=*, waterway=river would not be duplicated :-)
>Are these exercises at the same time each year?

If I knew, I would have to kill myself. :-)
