You're right. These are two separate functions, though they can be combined
into the transformer at the expense of more iron in the transformer.

A 20mA constant current source across the line will work well to take you
off hook.
The CO needs to see 20mA to take you off hook for sure.
Why is this good? What's the impedance of a constant current source? :)
