Yeah, I'm unlikely to ever use anything like that power no matter how silly I go with lights. The main thing is 'power at 2000rpm'.
I've been riding Japanese bikes with permanent-magnet electrics for quite a few years now, and never had any problems. There are some troublesome models, though. I reckon at a pinch you could use two of the three phases of a UJM rec/reg with the EnDuraLast stator, if you had to.
