For me this sounds like using two inappropriate tags instead of one.
Neither is it a turning circle (which does not have a central island)
nor is the central island some kind of traffic calming.

I agree with Paul Johnson: silently fix it. If some doesn't want - for
whatever reason - map it correctly, than let them tag it as
turning_circle with a fixme tag. Better than nothing. Though I myself
would never do it that way, as this would be more work than simply
drawing a circle. But that's just me.
