frequency=* should not be deprecated (if that is ever possible at OSM at
all) or removed from the wiki page because otherwise mappers are forced
to add a useless relation on every single power line. If you map a power
line, you usually know its frequency. For example, 50 Hz is the default
frequency in Europe. If the line belongs to the separated 16.7 Hz
network, it is signed (signs with the name of the operator, e.g. DB
Energie GmbH at the towers).

Please keep OSM simple. I don't want to add a power route relation on
every tiny minor distribution line/cable (230 V).

Best regards
