I actually raised that possibility in the discussion we had as well! I
would prefer (and think it's more elegant) if there were a route
relation covering both the access roads and the ferry route itself, as
we use route relations extensively already. Is there an established
place in the route relation network= hierarchy for ferry routes? It
looks like they are at the same level as land-based state highways, so
they would be route=ferry, network=US:WA?
