Regarding the power=minor_line tag vs distribution :

This problem is currently discussed in the Power path refinement proposal

Link to Talk :

power=line + usage=distribution or power=line + usage=transmission sounds
better than line / minor_line.
+1 with Bryce to say transmission/distribution (IEC 601-01-09
and 601-01-10
is far better than minor/major but the proposal hasn't been voted yet.

Feel free to complete it according to your needs.

All the best
