[Tagging] marine traffic control towers

I don't know if marine traffic control stations actually have a "proper"
name, like airport control towers?

Doesn't really seem to be anything that fits well?

Best option would appear to come under man_made, possibly either

:monitoring station
which also makes reference to monitoring traffic
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:monitoring:traffic, although they
refer to counting, rather than controlling


:tower https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Aman_made%3Dtower, which
then also allows you to specify type_, possible either communication,
observation or both?

Had a look at the Dover Coastguard base, which monitors (but not sure if
they also control?) marine traffic in the Straights of Dover
http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=18/51.13303/1.34274&layers=T, & that is
only shown as amenity_coastguard

Anybody know of any other major marine traffic control stations that could
give any clues?
