It would already be helpful if there actually were a common definition
to distinguish masts from towers.

By the way, i've written a message to the person who added the
definition to the wiki that 'a tower is accessible and provides
platforms, whereas a mast only offers ladder steps to climb it' [1]
and asked him where this definition comes from and what 'accessible'
exactly means (a ladder also provides access).
