Dear Mateusz,

Proposal goes through different stages and I was proposing simpler driver=*
instead of mechanical_driver. Comments have been made about the possible
confusion with human drivers driving cars.
However, drivers aren't specific to pumps at all.

Current pump=* doesn't deal with pumps but with water wells and possible
motors/engines installed to get water. I was confused by this in the very
pump=powered mixes electric motors and gasoline engines which are way
different. Situations may occur with emergency services coming with
gasoline to run an electric motor for instance.
The opportunity (not an obligation) to replace this particular value with
more detailed and useful information is the goal of the proposal.

One possible way to state the isn't manually operable is to use handle=no
without any mechanical_driver (waiting to be defined by knowledgeable

All the best
