+1 in parts, but there is stuff that we already do register like
airports, runways, and other that might be potentially recorded like
electric beacons, ...

I wouldn't like to see flight routes as ways in the data though and I
don't think they are a similar case than ferries. Unlike ferries they
would interfere a lot with surrounding data (ferries don't because we
hardly map anything in the sea).
