That Australian mini_roundabouts look different to UK mini_roundabouts
belongs on the Australian specific page, I think.

Whether junction=roundabout is a useful tag at all, and whether it adds
anything to OSM mapping, is not really an Australian specific issue.  I
think it would be out of place on an Australian specific tags page,
regardless of the validity of the argument.
