Yes, that is why 'contributor' was picked, rather than 'performer',
'creator', or 'composer'. :)

You can always specify multiple 'role's in hCard to state that the
person had more than one role.

I've got no problem adding more "contributor types" as convenience
classes for "composer", "performer", "publisher", "label", etc. However,
like all things Microformats - they've got to be backed up by examples.

The issue isn't "wouldn't these be really cool to have", but rather "we
need to demonstrate that there are enough of these on the web to justify
adding more terms to hAudio".
