Agreed, for a long time I used highway=mini_roundabout for cul-de-sacs
with islands (usually planted with trees).

I propose we start accepting junction=roundabout to be used on nodes.
This shouldn't produce any problems for data consumers, is logical,
and would save a lot of time for tagging the many small roundabouts
that exist especially in residential areas.
