Yes, I'm specifically avoiding suggesting that we routinely map
telephone lines (they are very common in some places, and probably
rather hard to map consistently from aerials, compared with power
lines).  I'm just concerned with what to do with things that have been
tagged incorrectly once, and, if simply deleted, might be re-mapped
incorrectly again; in this case, leaving a reminder effectively saying
"this is not a power line although it looks like one on Bing".
