5) Properly define a relation so that it does not need to know every 
single segment, but can 'work it out' from the normal rules. That is it 
only needs to pick up segments from the roundabout that fill in the gap 
on the segments it is following. So going north on a dual carriageway, 
only the north facing segments are traced, along with the correctly 
directed segments in the roundabout. A complex motorway interchange may 
have non-closed sections related to a roundabout junction, but if the 
routing does not require accessing the actual roundabout then it's 
segments will be skipped - but it still has to be part of the route 
relationship since one needs to know where you can join or exit the route?
