Only used is very small parts of the world - as seen on taginfo map.

For contrast there are over 500,000 power=line in the data base,
and the use is world wide..

Not usefull.

Verifiable? As in there are power lines there, yes.

However I view them similar to roads .. there maybe a power line there .. but 'traffic' can be in both directions.

I see no point in having a dedicated 'route' for power.
