Well I won't debate the wisdom of Variable Speed Limit signs.
I'm not in AZ so I have no idea how they will implement this idea.
I assume there will be a Maximum speed limit on the road (which is what I would post.)
If they vary the limits on a schedule then it could be handled just like turn restrictions are now.
Yes... I agree that would be a pain, but it could be made to work.
I could also see a Speed Warning Place type.
When you enter the area the client could pop up a warning:
"Variable Speed Limits in effect in this area"
It would also work for School Zones.
"Entering a School Zone! Please Check your Speed."
Again this could have the option to have a schedule attached to it 7:00 am - 4:00 pm M-F
Or known enforcement areas.
"Known speed enforcement area"

Also, trying to keep up with construction zones and finding out what the speed limit is for that zone, when it starts, and remembering when it ends.
In my mind the Speed Limits would be handed by user reports.
The base data could be imported:http://www.motorists.org/speed-limits/state-chart
Report of a speed limit outside of the nominal range could be required to be verified before being posted.
