I stopped tagging highway=living_street instead I use highway=* plus

We all talk about live-developing but this includes, from time to time,
decisions which where appropriate at that age but are not anymore.

In my opinion a pole is a pole is a pole and it is sometimes not that
easy to tell the differences between power and telephone, for example.
Also you will find poles which support different systems at once.

I can live with power_tower but you will find towers with different
systems, as well, and even transmitters and other stuff mounted.
