If I'm not misunderstanding things, that key never went through a proposal
process. But it looks
like a reasonable foundation and has been used in the wild. I suggest we
try to fix up any
problems and do something with it, rather than re-invent the wheel. Also
incorporate the USB

I'm in three minds about that. There's no sense in power_supply=no +
power_supply:socket_type=europlug. Having power_supply=yes indicates that
type is unknown, having power_supply=europlug is all that's needed. OTOH,
power_supply:socket_type is consistent with the tags for power, voltage and
the gripping hand, the recent proposal here was for amenity=power_supply,
yes|no becomes unnecessary.

It wouldn't be impossible to add all the wikipedia socket types to it. And
would be a good idea.
The question is what formal process (if any) do we use to amend the draft
and take it to a vote.
