If either the highway or waterway is mapped as an area then I would expect the ford to be mapped both as a line across the area and also as a node at the intersection of the centre line. Only if both highway and waterway are mapped as areas would expect the ford to be mapped as an area (and also as a node at the intersection of the centre lines).
I would say that it should not be mapped as a node on the centre line.
If data consumers want that, they can infer it from the more detailed
I would say that fords are conceptually quite similar to bridges and
tunnels, and people don't generally map those as points.
