For most mappers, including myself, a distinction between big and small can be done easily for most cases and is in general helpful for rendering. If you are not interested in this (maybe sometimes arbitrary) distinction, you could look only at the voltage tag and treat minor_line and line the same, you don't have to "deprecate" common tagging rules to do it, and deprecation of minor_line won't magically make voltage information turn up.
