You don't get confused when your navigation program starts talking to
you about intersections that don't exist?  When this happens to me,
and it does happen from time to time (*), and I'm in an area I'm not
familiar with, it confuses me.

(*) For example, "make a slight right onto Whatever Ave", when there's
just a pretty much straight road ahead of you with no traffic lights
or stop signs or other traffic control devices.

Anyway, while looking for an example of a roundabout, I came across
this: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/83428962/history

Why did you remove the roundabout tag?
