As you say, this keyword might not be very useful as an access key. But
the proposal is also about establishing keywords for different types of
vehicles. So, this might be used like mobility_scooter:rental or
service:mobility_scooter:repair (or mobility_scooter:repair, depending
on which tagging scheme you prefer).
A typical wheelchair is smaller and more manoeuvrable than a typical
mobility_scooter, so it might be useful to add this fact on a barrier or
ramp that is too narrow to be used with a mobility scooter.
I can't come up with an example, but I feel like there are cases where
e.g. wheelchairs (as required medical equipment) are allowed but
mobility scooters (as convenience device) are not. I think there was a
case about the transport of mobility scooters in buses here a while ago.
