Because it gives you more information (e.g. the radius of the circle,
or a more detailed shape in case it isn't a circle). It also gives
more detailed information about the shape and the position of the
streets that connect at the junction. (in reality they do not meet all
in a single point).

Finally if you wanted to map what is inside the circle you don't have
a serious option without having explicit geometry, especially if it is
composed of more than one part.

Martin
