Well, according to the definition it _is_ erroneous. And unless we
decide to change the definition, stating this clearly on the wiki page
is worthwhile because this has apparently been a common mistake for
mappers to make.

Now the real question is whether we should change the definition. If we
did allow using junction=roundabout on nodes, as has been suggested in
this thread, would there be any reason left to prefer mini_roundabout
for roundabouts that are "not strictly a mini-roundabout"?
