[Tagging] telephone lines (and marking other things we don't map)

But what if the pole has both telephone and power on it? ;)  That's what's common here in my neighborhood.  I can look out my front door and see a pole with both of them using it.

We have already trouble with the power line system which gets

reconstructed at the moment but a similar system for telephone can work.

Please try to avoid mistakes like tagging the poles not man_made=pole

but under the "telephone" namespace.


For power systems, man_made=power_tower and man_made=power_pole are currently proposed here 

We can immagine man_made=telecommunication_pole if needed.

But I'm also attracted by:
* man_made=pole + pole:type=telecommunication

which would lead us to edit the power proposal with :

* man_made=tower + tower:type=power
* man_made=pole + pole:type=power
