Moreover, substation refinement vote is currently opened, one thing at a

Be sure I'm willing to propose a good solution to the multiple power
instances on the same node.
But it's hard work to look wide and time is currently missing for me.
That's why it's not good to launch vote now too : proposal has 99% chances
