I was searching for this some time ago because I once heard my Nuvi say
roundabout
somewhere but not around Quezon Circle or Maysilo where I pass by quite
regularly

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:junction%3Droundabout

will try to edit Quezon Circle and check then edit Maysilo and Monumento,
MOA et al

Welcome rotonda is not a rotonda anymore and also no longer Welcome but
Mabuhay Rotonda, much more the so-called EDSA rotonda :P
