This is a point of the whole debate and, why not type=power + power=circuit.

But i'm merely against power=circuit_segment and independent relations for
branch and trunk.

According to experience in France, a single relation involving all lines
and substations with appropriate roles (trunk, branch, whatever) is enough
and doesn't force to create several relations.
This point have to be cleared with proposal authors prior to vote.

I don't get that point.
Circuits need to be a relation.
A single way can't do the job since you have two substations to involve at

All the best
