Totally agree with that. I don’t understand the usage of a relation binding the distribution network elements: the connections between them can be retrieved from the nodes and ways, and the relation would merely be use for group tagging. IMHO, the relation would only make sense for transport lines, which are often viewed and treated as continuous, even if their characteristics change along their path (overhead, underground…). At a distribution level, however, this sounds overkill to me.
