Note that in many cases mobility scooters are legally considered to be pedestrians,
or de facto equivalent to pedestrians.

Maybe even in all cases? When this new key would be needed?

We split that up into bicycles (which got approved almost a year ago) and other types of electric vehicles, mainly in the category of 'scooters'. As we found out, the term 'scooter' is a particularly bad choice because it can refer to very different kinds of vehicles. This ambiguity even stands after translating the term in other languages, e.g. the German word "Roller" has the same issue. What makes it even worse is the fact that different people have a different understanding of the word, and sometimes are surprised that there is a second meaning.
