a town is also treated as a singular object in place=town (or an airport in
aeroway=aerodrome), it's clear that ports are made of many things, but
that's not a problem, you can still identify the one port obect (with its
name, etc.).
What about

seaway=port ?

Or maybe distinguish the types at this level? Container and passenger
terminals could be tagged as:


waterway=port   could describe an inland port (river or lake), although I
am not sure it is needed (can also be seen from the location).
