IMHO the IEC are right with defining everything below 100kV as
distribution, I wouldn't use this given term with a different meaning.
Maybe you could add another term like local_distribution for the last level
(Trafohäuschen), if you don't have confidence in the mappers tagging
voltage levels. According to wikipedia:de there seem to be 4 agreed levels
of power transport and distribution in Germany:

* 220kV/400kV (national transport, also DC)
* 110kV (regional transport)
* 30-60kV (regional distribution)
* 6-20kV (local distribution)
