"title" in hCard/vCard is well understood to mean "job/organization title"
and is commonly used.  "role" is less well understood and less used in both
existing vCard applications and content.

While "role" may have a lot of potential, it makes sense to use "title" as
it is understood, while "role" is figured out.
