As far as I know, we don't have a standard method for tagging the height
of an object mounted on top of another object, as distinct from the
combined heights of the objects above ground, or the elevation above sea
level of the base of the object. There are likely to be other cases, in
addition to wind turbines, where this distinction would be useful.
