[Tagging] RFC: generator:* (for power=generator features)

Following all of the useful feedback on this list and the wiki, I have
rolled together my proposals into one page. This proposes a new set of tags
under "generator:*=" to specify the kind of power generator.

It rolls together several proposed new tags, and changes to existing tags.

The aim is to provide a flexible framework to encompass:

   - The output rating (generator:rating)
   - The source of energy used (generator:source)
   - The type of energy generated (generator:output)
   - The method of generation (generator:method)

This should allow us to distinguish between a solar photovoltaic panel
producing electricity and a solar thermal panel producing hot water; between
a gas-fired combined-heat-and-power (CHP) station and a simple gas boiler.


Please comment on this list or the discussion page. Hopefully it shouldn't
need too much extra tweaking following existing discussions.
