route=ferry doesn't mean regular service with timetable. Small ferries 
crossing rivers are operating on demand. Also I think that no more 
explanation is necessary. If you arrive at "ferry-terminal", and there 
is no ferryboat, you have to call the number.

I would use for 'vaporetto' access=no foot=yes, for 'motonave' access=no 
foot=yes bicycle=yes. 'ferryboats' typical have some maxwight, maxheight 
or something like this.

The problem with vehicle=no is, that there are several other "things", 
which are no vehicles then passengers. Eg. a horse.
