Good Relations explicitly allows (and requires) multiple openingHours
entities in this situation.

There are some important potential semantic differences  between two
contiguous  time intervals, and a single temporally continuous time
interval.  If there are semantics attached to  Closing, then even though
there may be no point of time in between the Closing and the Opening, there
has none-the-less been a ClosingEvent.

This may affect statistics, fines, or even more significantly wages (when I
worked at the Technion, the union contract had overtime rates kick in after
8hrs worked on a given workday.  Since as  a systems programmer I would
often get stuck working past midnight, this would  show as up as clocking
out at 26:00 hrs....)
