[Tagging] power=* tag: minor_line vs. line

Wow, I only asked about using the single line/minor_line distinction; if this one isn't easy at all, what will it be by adding importance or usage, which seems far less obvious than minor_line/line, itself not as obvious as I thought at first? The current disctinction has the advantage it can be discussed on the simple viewing of the whole line; on the opposite, importance and usage will not be easy to retrieve without using network managers data. Won't it be better to determine once and for all the correct usage of current tagging, than creating a new scheme which, IMHO, will add more complexity to an already complex question?
