A group of friends were discussing the first electricity power link 
between Germany and Belgium.
And I was kinda proud to show them this 
where the only line across the border 
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/578137663> clearly shows.
Well done, guys (and gals?)!

Their concern was interstate power transfers and a maximum of 7,5 GW was 
mentioned (more than the 6 GW Belgian deprecated nuclear capacity, 
effectively running at 4,5 GW).
So then I was surprised that a power cable or line does not indicate 
that power.
I looked trough the wiki and all I found as power was an unsuitable 
So, as power:power=* seems weird, I added /power:maximum=7.5 GW/, 
allowing for power:mean=* or he like.
As I don't want to get into propositions, I let specialists discuss that.
Let me know if and how I should change that tag.

All the best,
