I am not arguing with your general description. However I think this is still a somewhat undeveloped field of medicine and even the terminology of power gets hinky. As a simple example Tour de France cyclists. Both considering very short term max efforts (say the same half a kilometer) the sprinters will blow the doors off the climbers on a flat but put them on a mountain and in that same half K the climbers will blow the doors off the sprinters. Both are power situations.
