In case that I map from aerial I would not delete no longer existing but visible on aerial
because I would be aware about that.

In case that I map from survey I can see whatever power line exists
and I will retag it (for temporary period, until aerials update) wth lifecycle
prefix. In this case there is no chance to be confused between "removed"
and "just unused".
