Thanks for the details in the Belgian law!

Thanks for these links, let me add this to the list of examples.

To summarize, there is a special class for speed pedelecs, called 
moped_p at the moment. This term seems to be used only in Belgian law, 
but not in other countries. I would opt to change it for an equally 
unique, but globally usable tag like the proposed 'speed_pedelec'. This 
keeps the interpretation of data much simpler, even if there are some 
country-specific details in the definition of this class.
