I think it's ok to leave the PWR port unterminated. I'm sure veryoldschool will pop in to clarify... He is the resident expert.
Both of you are correct.
All unused ports on a swm system should have the 75ohm terminator installed. They only real exception to this would the be dedicated power port on the SWM16 itself.
ALL "RF" ports should be terminated, but on the SWiM-16 the middle "connector" is marked PWR and doesn't have RF, so a "dust cap" will suffice.
