[Tagging] ref on roundabout

there is a little Discussion in the German forum concerning ref
tagging on Roundabouts. After looking at the Wiki again somebody
added (In April 2019) a section saying refs of the roads should 
continue on the ways with "junction=roundabout":

	"[[File:Roundabout_Ref_Consistency.png|thumb|Roundabout with ref tagging
	consistent with connecting roads]] For roundabouts that have ways either
	continuing through, or ending at the roundabout, {{Tag|ref}} and
	{{Tag|int_ref}} tags from those ways should be added to that roundabout.
	This allows routing to navigate through the roundabout more fluidly."

Has this been discussed somewhere? This is highly inconsistant with
the name meaning the roundabout and the ref not meaning the roundabout.

I strongly disagree with this section and i doubt there has been some 
concensus about this so i would like to revert this.
