The word 'round' implies circular. So a 'roundtrip' could be a circular 
route that does not go from A to B and back along the same route, it 
could go A to B to C and then back to A via D. As such your rewording is 
wrong and does not match present use.

Revert your change.

If you want to signify a route that goes from A to B and back along the 
same route invent another tag, roundtrip is not it.
