Ferry relations are not supported on OSRM. I didn't test the other ones.

If a line comes into the merged lines, and then comes out, the user can't
know what's happening. Those uses should be discouraged. But if merged
lines go into a ferry terminal, everything is clear. It's on the mapper to
make the best possible decision.
