Taking the various comments and suggestions into account,
I revised some of the tags proposed and also included electric mopeds
in the proposal.


The current set of tags is:

* electric_bicycle - bicycles with motor assistance
* speed_pedelec - fast electric bicycles, similar to mopeds
* kick_scooter - the 'childrens style' scooter
* small_electric_vehicle - electric scooters (similar to kick scooters), 
Segway etc. These refer to a class of vehicles in European (French, 
German) law
* moped:electric - slow electric motorcycles (EU: up to 25 km/h typically)
* mofa:electric -medium fast electric motorcycles  (EU: up to 45 km/h 

I hope that this set of tags is able to cope with most existing and 
planned regulations and is free of ambiguities.
Please let me know your opinion and further suggestions!
