I'm the guy who got 'annoyed'.

To all mkgmap users, please don't put the cart before the horse. OSM is 
a database for *many* renderers (including mkgmap) to use. Removing 
legitimate tags from OSM to get mkgmap to work is vandalism & wrong. The 
problem is clearly within mkgmap as it obviously can't filter/assimilate 
OSM data.

There are two duplicated tags on these ways/relation & it would be 
better if they were just within the relation.
However this was clearly not the reason for the tag removal as only one 
was deleted.

Oh, & power lines are fantastic navigation items.
