As we see that tower:type is cluttered by power values here, it would be
great to move to a new key.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:tower:type

The cluttering is real : a power tower can also be used as a communication
tower and we can't tag it.
tower:type is too restrictive also.

support:function was discouraged in a refinement proposal in 2015
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/Power_supports_refinement#support:function

Since IEC define both suspension and anchor clamping, we can use clamp=*
http://www.electropedia.org/iev/iev.nsf/display?openform&ievref=466-11-09
http://www.electropedia.org/iev/iev.nsf/display?openform&ievref=466-11-10

clamp=* would be available for power tower, power poles, power portals,
telecom poles, or any functional support and even washing lines.

Would this require a vote ?
