Various topological errors related to power lines are not detected by OSM 
editors. Monitoring the High Voltage power network for Quebec I often find 
nodes connecting crossing waterbody, highways, landuse to the power lines. JOSM 
validation do not detect these.  I often, it seems that remote mappers forget 
to look sideways in their virtual world.  Also, it is probably possible to 
write an Overpass query to find nodes that intersect this various «incompatible 

This made me write this humoristic note. Who knows, this may help OSM 
contributors to remember to look sideways.
