Additional icons for power=tower at lower zooms

Description

I'd like to propose a couple additional icons to use in the Mapnik renderer with power=tower nodes. The current Mapnik icon (a 7x7 square, crossed diagonally) is currently used for all zoom levels in which it is visible (14 through 18). This tends to result in power lines looking cluttered and over-emphasized at the lower zoom levels, especially where there are multiple, parallel power lines.

I propose using a 5x5 icon at zoom levels 16 and 15, and a 3x3 icon at zoom level 14. Simulated examples of the proposed look is shown here:

Are you the author of those icons and are you hereby giving permission to include them in the mapnik stylesheet?
