I would say that the problem is not with mkgmap but with Lambertus' 
toolchain. Apparently, he filters out all OSM ways that carry an 
admin_level, and then he processes the filtered map with mkgmap. The 
proper way to omit boundaries from the generated map would be to remove 
the generating actions from the used mkgmap output style.

Sure, overground lines are. My only issue is that on the tiny screen of 
the Edge 705, on a 2km or so zoom level, the power lines look like 
roads. Both are 1 pixel wide.

In cities, I guess I should investigate if we can hide underground 
infrastructure in the default style.
