I also think we shouldn't deprecate a tag in very widespread use.
So one can either use "power=pole;transformer", or use two nodes,
because after all the transformer's center of mass is almost certainly
not the center of the pole.

Sooner or later, data consuming programs will have to cope with
;-separated tags.  Perhaps there will be libraries to do this.
