They are all contributors, but they are sub-sets of the set of
contributors (and hence are more granular).

Why would it?

How is:

        <foo class="contributor">Bob Dylan</foo>

more useful than:

        <foo class="composer performer">Bob Dylan</foo>

The only time I can see the former class name being more useful is where
the finer granularity is unknown or unavailable.
