I think he means that there is usually a huge difference in voltage and line type between lines on giant towers or lines on smaller single wooden / concrete poles - and that also happens to be where a novice mapper can tell the difference in arial imagery. 

Because of this, it is a good idea to differentiate between line and minor line at that point - the lines are usually a very different class, and the novice mapper can easily tell the difference from decent imagery or when directly surveying their area. 


One of these things is not like the other! 
Two lines and 1 minor line (at least in the foreground). 

Having something be that obvious might be good for tagging and ease of mapping at the same time.
