It looks to me like "role" in vCard and hCard means what "role" in  
English means.  I would say "notetaker" is a role, but "abstain" is  
not.  Maybe "abstainer" could be a role, but it would need to be  
defined within a very specific context, unless you're describing  
someone who just goes around abstaining all day.  I think roles need  
to be nouns, not verbs.
