I would strongly disagree with this statement, as others have said this is a place for lane mapping.

As a map user I do not see a separate way, it results in confusing navigation instructions, turn instead of take the first exit from the roundabout.

There are also times when lines are not visible due to snow, whiteover with frost or just salt turning the road white.
