but that's why we do put context to man_made=tower (e.g. with
tower:type and tower:construction)
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/tower:type
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/tower:construction  (IMHO a "bad
tag" as currently most used values seem to belong to different
classification systems and are in some cases even contradictory, e.g.
"lattice" and "freestanding" are not mutually exclusive, "dish"
doesn't sound like a tower, neither does "dome").

cheers,
Martin
