[Tagging] Adding values to usage=* key for power transmission

I guess no one should tag a single feature with both power=* and railway=*
since they are actually separated in reality.
http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/167556124 is an error : is it an abandoned
railway with power feeder remaining on landscape or a power line built on
the abandoned railway ?
We don't know really...
So tags like usage=*, location=*, operator=*, ... should be domain-less and
get a worldwide extent for each field of knowledge which require them.
operator=* sounds to be the perfect example : everyone should use them but
all companies in the world won't operate all features.
We didn't create power:operator and railway:operator.
I hope I'm clear :)
All the best
