When I made relations for all the state highways in Washington, I included
the ferry routes and the ferry access roads in the highway route relation.
I also have done some edits to ferry terminals, adding a way for each lane
in the ferry waiting lot. This was previously done at some ferry terminals
in BC.

I agree with tagging the ferry terminal roads with service=ferry.
