Can I map a traffic island if there is only painted on the road?

You've found one way of mapping a traffic island.  But this is OSM, and we
have
multiple, conflicting ways of doing things.  :) Take a look at
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Street_area#traffic_island
which
is unclear but a sentence later on the page notes that the example traffic
island is
additionally tagged with pattern=hatched.  It's a proposal, and it's been
around for
seven years, and there have been only 7302 uses of traffic_island.  But
it's there.

Going back to traffic_calming=island, it cites a Wikipedia page which
states:
"A traffic island is a solid or painted object in a road that channels
traffic."  So it's
possible the author of that page intended to include the painted type but
chose
words poorly.  If the concensus here is that it should include painted
islands then
change "structure" in the wiki to "object" or "feature."
