We (OpenSeaMap) are open to suggestions on this. The harbour project has 
recently been re-started after a hiatus of several years. As we are 
building a separate database to contain imports from various public 
harbour data sources. These harbour objects only require a simple 
"seamark:type=harbour" tag to cause our map to render an icon and pop-up 
data from this database with a mouse hover. The question is: how do OSM 
mappers contribute to this data? Hence the facility availability tags. 
(These tags have existed for years, but were rarely used).

I would be interested to hear (constructive!) ideas.
