Yes, that's already stated in the proposal. Classification has to be
done on a local level. The proposal is about introducing keywords that
can be used in any context. E.g. the tagging of a shop for kick scooters

The classification comes from a EU directive, so should(tm) be very
similar in every member country, eventually, at some point in the future.

That's what the proposal says. Use the normal tag whenever there is no
distinction made. But if a rental station offers electric mopeds, that
should be possible to tag.
>mobility_scooter: in Italy these are not considered "vehicles" at all
As are wheelchairs - and still we need a proper tag for them.
