It sounds as though my Quick Start (actually the name is a little different) question may have been based on false information - wishfull but false. I will do some more reseach and if if find out anything reliable and usful I will pass it along.
I asked my father, an electrician, about this idea. His comment was that the design of equipment is based on a current draw and, that information was in the manual as initial current then running current requirements. He added that what you spoke of as "booster" is absolutely correct on generators but not any equipment as you mention that he was aware. I looked up some info on the Hondas then Yamaha generators. It seems that the Yamaha generators come with this "booster capabilty" for initial draws of equipment but not the small Hondas.

A lot of the surge current ratings are a result of having a large heavy flywheel that can absorb some of the current spike with all that momentum. The Honda's don't have much rotating mass to overcome these spikes.
