So you're saying that for the common case where creator is clear
enough, it'd look like this:
<span class="creator vcard">author1</span>
<span class="creator vcard">author2</span>
<span class="title"> article title</span>
And then only use 'role' where necessary to clear things up?
I like that, and now I see where you said it earlier, but I missed it then.
This sounds like a good solution. What does everyone else think?
Also, what's the next issue to resolve before we can put out a draft?
