An octagon is the smallest number of nodes to accurately describe a circle.  And they have been tidied using JOSM's circle function.

Having just spent 3 months on the road collecting over 9000km's of gps traces which have already been incorporated into osm, due to problems with our vehcile we've got 6 months of while we wait for repairs so how I spend that time is totally up to me.
