It was discussed month ago on this mailing-list and it was a pain to get it
adopted, and then failed.
We do have power=tower and power=pole, I'll let the one who will try to map
telephone and CATV to get the consensus on multi-utility tower/pole.

Maybe it will be me, but I currently don't have time to spend on it.

I do not mind if you retag the "real" power facilities but think it is

At first sight yes, but each case is an example for new contributors and
what will they choose if both tags are on the object ?
There are no compatibility issues regarding < 1000 objects.

It won't be the same when 10000k of them would have been added.

My point is most of power=* values have been adopted and everyone get the
occasion to give its opinion where utility=* doesn't.

I'll ask him, indeed.
