well, as we can see with this thread, the diff betwen line
and minor_line is, depending of the mapper :
- the size of the tower (although it would make a lot more sense to tag 
a tower as major/minor instead of putting this information on the line)
- the usage transmission > distribution
- the voltage

it seems to be like landuse=forest <> natural=wood, the only information 
we can deduce is that there is a line, the rest is variable according to 
the mapper, the rest is "meaning a or meaning b or meaning c" so finally 
no meaning if you want to use the data seriously

the ease of mapping is power=line and move all details away.
having a minor_line<>line that depends on the size of the towers
as you seem to prefer is probably not easier.
