I've recently noticed that man_made=MDF has been added to man_made template
on Map Features page.

This key's page say this tag status is De Facto.

I strongly discourage the use of MDF as a man_made feature since it's only
a functional component of a telco central office.
According to picture, it's usually a large metal grid where public copper
landlines are connected to equipments which provide services.

Mappers won't be able to see MDFs unless they get in central offices
building which may be difficult.

I suggest to don't add such tags to Map Feature prior to deeply refine
telecom tagging scheme.

All the best
