Hi Alv,

As explained in proposal, it aims to match IEC definitions prior to be like
in some mappers' mind.
If it's well detailed, it will be understood by a large amount of people.

As written in def 601-03-03, a power line is an arrangement of conductors
designed to transfer electricity between sources and loads.

Thus, it can be overground, underground or whatever it's always a power
line and should be identified by power=line.
Many other well-used tags are here to give more information.

I've understood your point of view, nevertheless I won't change that key
point of the proposal.
Votes will tell me if I'm right... or wrong.

Thank you.
