Thanks. In this case I think recognizing that the way is part of a
roundabout is probably sufficient. A large portion of roundabouts
don't have names, right?
But I've come across situations where the unnamed road is not a
roundabout, though. In one of these cases I used
highway=unclassified, because it was just a dirt road that was really
just a shared driveway (it was imported from TIGER because it used to
be a real road). That stopped the maplint warning. But in another
case it was just a residential road that connected two other roads,
which according to the county records doesn't have a name, so I think
highway=residential is the right way to tag it. I'd want to go out
there and make sure there's no sign before adding lint:name=nocheck.
But once I've done that it'd be nice to tag it so that no one else has
go through the same work I've just done.
