Mechanical energy

After looking at the wiki page and the taginfo, I don't see what value I shall enter for "mechanical energy" powering stuff like e.g. millstones, saws, hammers etc. One example would be

This usecase is releveant despite it hasn't been added in the first proposal. I'd suggest generator:output:mechanical=* ? Fanfouer (talk) 10:17, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
It looks like node 7530387022 is a historic water mill? This can be mapped as man_made=watermill, if that's correct. My understanding is that generator:output=* is used with power=generator, not with mechanical windmills or water mills. --Jeisenbe (talk) 17:06, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok for man_made=watermill too. generator:output:mechanical=* will be actually relevant for power generators on which mechanical energy is took as a side business (like steam for district heating next to nuke or thermal power plants) Fanfouer (talk) 17:14, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
