No, the smaller the roundabout the more non-roundabout it will look,
so it won't render correctly.

I'm actually making the claim you are trying to get us to tag for
garmins because they don't render the information the same as other
rendering software.

> Your missing my point here, in that all the data needs to be collected so that the different renderers and routers can then do as they like with the data.  If you want garmin or mapnik to render the data as just a cross or t intersection even though its actually a roundabout then you can do so or vv.

I understand the point perfectly, however you are pushing one thing
because you have a problem with the output, doesn't mean it's being
tagged incorrectly.

> We are collecting that data, not just making the map, so lets make it as accurate as possible.

Accurate is subjective, I think there are some mini roundabouts and
tagging them as mini roundabouts is accurate to me, but it's not to
you because it doesn't work properly on your device.
