[Tagging] RFC: Seaway key - proposal for mapping ports

I do know a little bit about marine operations, close coastal ones at
Bert's suggestion about expanding the use of waterway could work well.
I'm wondering about incorporating that into the proposal, but possibly
replacing "seaway" with a different new tag: "maritime"?
1* : *of, relating to, or bordering on the sea
2 *: *of or relating to navigation or commerce on the sea
So waterway=maritime + maritime=port + port=cargo / cruise / fishing etc
That would get away from concerns that "seaway" should be related to
transport routes, even though there are no exact sea routes, in the way
that railways & roads are exact defined ways. Even ferry routes are, to a
certain degree, approximate, as the vessel could, depending on wind & tide,
move quite markedly sideways, rather than following an precise line.
