I don't think this is always true. In Belgium, we have distinctly different access tags for the speed pedelecs (electrically powered bicycles with speed up to 45 km/h) in the law. It's indicated on traffic signs with the letter P. 

We currently have Class A (mofa, up to 25 km/h). Class B (moped up to 45 km/h) and now Class P (speed pedelec up to 45 km / h). 

Some examples:
Class A (mofa) and P (speedpedelec) allowed, not B (moped)

This sign makes an exception for regular bicycle and speed pedelecs in for example one way streets, but not for mofa or mopeds.

So in Belgium, I think we do need a specific access tag for speed pedelecs. People have been using moped_p=* for a while now, but this never went through the proposal process.
