[Tagging] Rendering of individual power lines in residential areas on default osm-carto

Just a couple of observations.

The first is that there are not many such elements in urban areas for the
"problem" to become an obvious one. This will change if more mappers add
power lines and these examples become more obvious.

In the UK, in urban areas, it is more common to see telephone wires (and
poles) in residential streets than power lines, but again not many mappers
have mapped them. I also think that they are not being rendered currently
in the OSM style.
