Hi all,

Here is another proposal we were two working on it.
It regards several kinds of utility markers usually warning about buried
infrastructure beneath them.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Utility_markers_proposal

Markers are currently described with keys like pipeline=* and power=*
although they're not directly involved in infrastructure running processes
(like a valve can be on a pipeline for instance).
Then it can be useful to define a new key marker=* to gather more
categories on OSM (pipeline is for now the most mapped here) and prevent
pipeline, power and telecom keys be cluttered with not directly related
features.

Note that markers mapping is important on OSM as location signs and
relevant data to verify presence of not visible infrastructures.

Feel free to raise concerns here and on talk page.

All the best

Fran├žois
