If a 50 ohm generator is connected to a 50 ohm resistor (or

Maybe it should be "maximum *available* steady-state power" which is
not always the same thing as "maximum "possible" power"? :-)

Maximum possible is correct. The maximum
"available" from the generator is a constant
value. The maximum "delivered" is the thing can be
lower than the maximum.
