This is similar to CONVERT and CELL.  I think you naturally end up with 
these whenever you have a potentially open-ended set of variations on the 
same basic function.  You can manage it by guaranteeing that values will 
be added but not removed in future revisions, and that extensions would 
need to be namespaced.

In any case, I just want to point out that this is the kind of thing that 
can cause problems in ISO/IEC, since a delegation can easily feel slighted 
if their holidays are not included.  So making an "adaptable" solution 
would be advised.
