I think you are saying that power=line/minor_line/cable as a top-level tag is wrong, and there shoudl be power=line with (optional) subtags for the various things, like bare/covered/insulated, disttibution/transmission, and voltage. If so, I agree, but it's been explained that this fight happened a while ago and what we have now is the outcome. It seems in this case the OSM way is just to use power=line, don't worry, and let others fix it up if necessary. _______________________________________________ Tagging mailing list Tagging@openstreetmap.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging
