Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Personally I have no problems whatsoever that the facility could serve as a spaceport (after all, there is plenty of space) but fact is that the structure is referred to as "Earth Spacedock" and not "Earth Spaceport" which would be a much more appropriate term if that was the main function, not to mention that this would help immensely to differentiate from the spacedocks we had seen in the previous movies.
That's totally splitting hairs, because the terms "dock" and "port" have always been used interchangeably throughout history to describe any place where ships are moored.
