One question & a couple of suggestions.

How will it relate to https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Harbour, or will
a harbour contain various types of ports?

A couple of other variations that could possibly be included are anchorages
& boat harbours for small, leisure vessels?

Yes, https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dmarina exists, but
that is for a developed area with piers, berths, refueling facilities etc,
while an anchorage is only an area of sheltered water protected by
something like an island or a breakwater, usually without any facilities. eg

A boat harbour is also intended as a safe anchorage for small, pleasure
vessels, but will be better protected than an anchorage, although it will
often have no facilities either eg
