As of December 2011, the opening sentence of the Wikipedia article "Utility pole" reads:

A utility pole is a pole used to support overhead power lines and various other public utilities, such as cable, fibre optic cable, and related equipment such as transformers and street lights.

This key-value pair is rare, but is intended to provide a way of tagging such man made objects based on aerial imagery without a need to reference a specific use case, such as power=pole or highway=street_lamp, for instance.

Do not use this tag if you know what utilities the pole supports.
