Yes - I think actually the third of those might be best put in the
free text field, especially if the field accepted wiki-formatting, so
you could then link to the blogpost/tweet.

I would like to have some kind of wording that subsumes these under
the same heading as "walked past and saw it" - possibly "I was there
in person" or something? I would like the wording to emphasise that
you have to see the place _actually open_ for it to count as confirmation.
The London guide already has (in plain text, I think,
not in DB fields)
info on when opening times were checked and when it was last confirmed
to still exist. eg ...
which says (at the moment) "Last visited by DrHyde, March 2011. Opening
hours taken from the Balham Bowls Club website, December 2011". I think
there's value in this.

programmatic manipulation (with a bit of screenscraping and fiddling).
I usually like to have the opening hours provenance attached to the
opening hours, somehow, as well. My latest OpenGuides project
(launching on 1 August!) has the provenance in the opening hours
field, e.g. the metadata display looks like this:
Address: 104 Tamworth Road, CR0 1XX (map) (osm) (gmap) (streetview)
Opening Hours: 6:30am-6pm Mon-Sun (taken from A-board opposite cafe, August 2011)
Categories: British Food, Cafes, Eat-In Food
Locales: Croydon, Tamworth Road
i.e. when I added that page, I typed "6:30am-6pm Mon-Sun (taken from
A-board opposite cafe, August 2011)" in the "Opening hours" box on the
