> power=station tag was really created by accident (German for substation is "Station") whereas "power station" in English actually is a synonym for a power plant

actually in German a substation is called Umspannwerk (transformer station) while a power plant aka station is called Kraftwerk. The word Station has a lot of different meanings but is AFAIK not used for power something, see also here http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Station

Don't blame the Germans for everything ;-)
