Ladies and gents

There is never any need to label the conveniences in bars, restaurants etc anything other than 'ladies' and 'gents'. Today, I had the choice of Knights and Dames, neither of which I am. It's not wacky and/or zany or even particularly original.
And when it is done, how come the disabled toilet is always left as 'disabled'? What's the matter - can't think of a suitably medieval/cowboy/gangster term for a wheelchair user? If not, then just don't bother at all.
