IMHO motorcar should be defined as automobile/car, and not be used as
a generic term including busses, hgv, goods and other. If we had car
and motorcar parallelly this would create a lot of confusion.

I'd also like to point at "motor_vehicle" which doesn't seem to be
defined reasonably (it includes all vehicles with a motor, like mofas
and mopeds with 25 / 50 ccm motors). In theory (by the name and
category) it would also include motor-boats, RC cars and spacecraft
;-) ("any motorized vehicle"). This is not a useful definition in
respect to traffic laws of the countries I know of (there is a
definition gap for a class that does not include for example mofas and
assisted bicycles).
