basically just draw the outline and add seaway=fishing_port, name=* etc. to
the object. If you can't draw the outline, use a node.
If you want more detail about the port (typology / properties), please
explain what should be added (you'll likely know better then me what you
need, as you have many of them).


What I haven't decided yet is whether to propose using a property like
to distinguish terminals (route endpoints) from other ports, or if we use
different main tags like this:
seaway=ferry_port or seaway=ferry_terminal

Second question: does it make sense to state something like "home port" or
"port of call" for cruise ports?
