I wouldn't do that. I find that I'm breaking up roundabouts a lot in
order to include parts of them in relations for bicycles and buses. For
buses the parts will have different roles (backward, forward) in a route
relation. For bicycle routes, often it's only a part of them that is
part of the relation.
