My thoughts are that power from the mains is assumed unless
otherwise indicated.  But the more I think about it, in the
scenario you just mentioned, maybe it does make sense to have a
"mains" symbol.  In the case where ALL power is lost everywhere
throught a huge region, it would be nice to be able to mark an
OBJECT or stations with the MAINS symbol when power is restored
there.  Thanks...  SO unless someone can think of a better use
of the "6" and "5" overlays on a house, then we can let them
represent 60 or 50 Hz mains power...  Ive added them to the
list...
