Where I lived in Seattle, we have these traffic calming islands. They are
basically just a physical small island in the center of an intersection
usually planted with small scrubs. From aerial imagery they might look like
a roundabout, but technically they are not. The purpose is to slow traffic.
Often there isn't even a place for a pedestrian. They play hell with trucks
trying to make deliveries.

I agree that JOSM's presets are insufficient. I've made my own for mapping
pedestrian crossings.
