It's not; Bill simply wasn't assuming L1(/L2) restriction, since not
doing so better suited his "Corporations Are God; Governments Suck"
I will note that in fact, the power wires are usually owned by a
franchised monopoly, and sometimes the water pipes. Even so, it's the
Natural Monopoly that's the issue: you don't want to dig up the road
every 15 minutes, especially for players who might fold in the middle.
