Ulf, the proposal introduced a new set of tags to specify the type of
power=generator, deprecating two existing tags. The new set of tags is more
powerful and loses none of the detail made possible by the old tags.

When that happens, the only logical course of action is to update the wiki
documentation showing the new tags and removing the deprecated tags. It
makes no sense to continue telling people about deprecated tags.

That is what I have done with the English pages; now I am asking for others
to update the translated pages.

I don't understand your point.
