I think these should be covered, maybe with a new type seaway=landing_site
tagging them as leisure=marina (although understandable you wanted to see something on current maps), can be seen as tagging for the rendering and the sooner we’ll fix it the better

indeed it is covering infrastructure for ocean going vessels, leaving out those places that are used only by inland water traffic (assuming they were already covered in waterway, or could be added there if still missing). When facilities are serving both, the new key guarantees that both kind of tags can be applied.
