Okay, so, for OSM terminology, a roundabout means 1) traffic goes in
one direction; 2) entering traffic must yield; and 3) entering traffic
need not stop (no stop signs).
I hope not...OSM currently has no way of reflecting priority at
junctions. Introducing this distinction just for "circular junctions" is
a bit pointless.
However if the consensus is to distinguish between the priority rules at
"circular junctions", I hope it will be explicitly tagged (e.g.
junction=traffic_circle) so mkgmap will still be able to recognise a
"circular junction" and call it a roundabout even if it doesn't comply
with the OSM semantics for one.
