Only if, in addition, you-know-what is very, very you-know-what.  (Let's
do so.)

As for the rest, I'm confused.  I say the total value of output would be

4V + L.

You say (for purposes of discussion? in real life?) it would be

5V + (L - V).

Since 4V + L = 5V + (L - V), I don't see where we differ.  I realize that
different expressions for the same thing can have different connotations,
but I don't really even see different connotations clearly here.

It seems that you're saying that the value of the 5th machine *would be*
transferred to the output, except that it is wasted and must be written
off.  That's what I'm saying as well.
