It seems there hasn't been so many activity on substation refinement
proposal for weeks.

How about launching vote, at least on power=station deprecation for
substations and inside stations stuff ?

I've used the new model to map sevral big and small French substations and
I didn't find any big issues.

How about the hosted features on poles / towers discussion ?
