Yeah I would rather agree.
We also have the highway=* tag to describe one and each road, not only
high-speed ways between major cities.

I agree on this point, any kind of non-technical cabinet won't be covered

It is excluding all indoor cabinets, especially when they're underground,
in tunnels or whatever.
We also have a generic tag to describe features' location : location=*

That's the simplest indeed.
If a refinement must be done, I would choose this one.
