But what is a case where the only difference is in right-of-way?

I don't see right-of-way as a rule so much as a guideline.  If you are
going to call any roadway which is kind of circular in shape a
roundabout, no matter how large, and no matter how complicated the
intersections, then where do you draw the line?  Is the beltway around
Washington DC a roundabout?
