Hi,

As suggested on Talk page of Power transmission refinement proposal, power
lines and cable should be described with a key giving their usage in the
network.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/Power_transmission_refinement#line.3D.2A_and_cable.3D.2A:_similarity_and_difference

I knew usage=* and it can be the ideal key to indicate usage=transmission,
usage=distribution,... on power lines or power cables.
But it is currently and exclusively used for railway tagging.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:usage

Is it acceptable to extend its definition to power lines or another key
should be used?
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Power_transmission_refinement#overhead_power.3Dline

Power transmission proposal had been updated by moving line=* values to
usage=* but this can be changed depending of your feedbacks.

All the best
