This would not always help.
See for example hw=service way 50330706 

One has to crawl through several service ways to find out that the ferry is
connected with
the hw=secondary way 475872377 

I see no easy way to implement an algo which would find out that this
hw=secondary is the
one that "delivers" the wanted road class. I fear this kind of mapping
happens quite often.

I would expect that the Garmin routing algo is aware of this when it comes
to ferry lines, but did not
yet test it.
