Hi all,

The idea is to map some components of such local loops. Among them :
central offices and connection points (often enclosed in street cabinets).
Cables and households connections are very optional and may be hard to
describe and maintain in OSM.

A local loop in its whole may be represented as a relation if necessarily
(with several roles obviously)

Heat and sound are optional tags for effects of cabinet itself (if the sun
only makes the cabinet unbearably hot in summer, heat=* shouldn't be used).
Users can add any details they found interesting in these keys.

All the best
