Please comment the proposal here:

I think this is unnecessary

If something is circular, map it as a circle.

Otherwise circular=yes is insufficient. You need to discuss whether to specify radius or diameter, and if both are specified which should take priority if they contradict each other. For larger circles you would possibly also need to specify which projection you expect it to be circular in.

Not the place for it

If we wanted to add a datatype we would go about it by changing the data model to add an arc object type, not by attempting to redefine what a way is. Pnorman (talk) 12:35, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

This has to be a joke. At best this is a pointless rendering hint that would be unusable to renderers. Chillly (talk) 13:34, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
