Sorry, (not a maritime expert here) but I don't see how you can classify a given harbour / port as either an intermediate stop, or a terminus.  Surley, some services will stop there only briefly, before going on elsewhere, but others will terminate. 
I could understand that a given port could be included in a number of route relations, with role of "terminus" in one route, but "intermediate stop" in another, but I don't think that any port could be classified exclusively as one or the other.

the term seaway was chosen as these are related to transportation on the sea. Similar to how railway=station refers to railbased infrastructure but isn’t about a route itself. 

I’d like to point out that many ferry ports aren’t terminals, but intermediate stops on a route, and that landuse isn‘t suitable in general to tag countable features.
