Err what is this?

Ratherly agreed defaults don't prevent anyone to specify values in all
situations if ou she/he wants to.

Here is the Zurich Airport ground energy systems documentation.
Three types of supplies : Aircraft, ground and GPU

OSM would only describe ground power supplies and obviously not mobile GPU
precisely because they move.
It's not so desirable to add power_supply=GPU on the airport perimeter or
relation because you'll have to deald with electronic appliances charging
supplies, industrial supplies or any other numerous kind of supplies in
such a complex facility.

All the best
