substance=water use to be used on raw water transmission, not for district
heating networks.
That's why substance=hot_water (despite it may be not the best term) is
here to distinguish 2 really different product going down pipelines
usage=transmission is already widely used too.

No problem with this, let's write and we'll organize it later

I'd add that phone and email are related to operator=* value and shouldn't
be added directly to features.
The Company name is enough (phone and email can be found in wikidata

All the best
