You can specify roles in the contributor vcard [1] e.g
<span class="contributor vcard">
<span class="role">Publisher</span>...etc

roles are: artist, publisher, guitarist, vocalist, violinist, lead
singer, backup singer, bassist, drummer, manager, roadie... etc 

As for specifying an Identifier well unfortunately the from the examples
we used [2] there wasnt much evidence of any kind of Identifier other
than the url's themselves.

Both Manu and I are both collecting new examples for possible uses of
UID and Track Numbers I don't know when this will be complete though 

Hope this is of some help
