Here is the best action I have seen using roles, It may be useful to the

from http://microformats.org/wiki/hcard-examples-in-wild-reviewed


their roles are the instruments that they play

Roles are *NOT* defined in hAudio as such other than..

"The role attribute SHOULD be used to specify the contributor's
responsibility related to the audio recording if hCard is utilized"

the context comes from hcard

"Information regarding the role of the object"

the "object" in most cases the person.

whats good is, its user defined, we may be able to give sensible hints
to what you put in there but really it's up to the publisher the choice
is yours eg: "groupie", or "stage hand" could be fun!.

"original artist", "band", "group", "quartet" are valid roles I would

so are

"vocalist", "bassist", "drummer", "producer", "artist" for individuals

If we had a "hPunchup" microformat you could have a role of "looser" ;)

I AM worried that we should be using "title" instead of "role" in some
