Hi

The man_made=street_cabinet key sounds suitable to map items described with
power=substation + location=kiosk.
They are actual small cabinets like those where no technician can enter to
work (opposite of building) :
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:10kV_trafo_kiosk.jpg

Street cabinet is the container while substation is the function.

Wiki example on this page gives follwing tags:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dsubstation#Examples
power=substation
substation=minor_distribution
location=kiosk

I propose to update it as such :
man_made=street_cabinet
street_cabinet=power
power=substation
substation=minor_distribution
location=pavement (or wherever the cabinet is located)

It works both for nodes or areas.
Additionnal advantage is to get location=* back to give cabinet position
instead of substation design (there was issues to tag underground kiosks
for instance)
There are 7k objects in db:
https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/location=kiosk

Pages to update are :
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dtransformer#Location_values
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:location
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:substation%3Dminor_distribution
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:power%3Dsubstation#Location
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dstreet_cabinet

How do you feel about it ?

There are no need of a time consuming formal proposal to deal with this
question.
Without further coments, i will update wiki pages in 15 days.
No automated edits.

Thanks for your time
