I was wondering about this also. Will all the alternatives from the 
playground be added to this list eventually?

In Role 2, in terms of it being a split role as David Chadwick pointed 
out in the terminology playground comments:

Is it possible this could be a place for pseudonymity?

E.G, Role 2 would allow all of:

Holder of credential for my dog (Subject)
Holder of credential for my Alzheimer parent (Subject)
Holder of credential for my pseudonym (Subject)
etc.

If so, wouldn't it seem best to have a separate main word for each of 
those parts?
E.G.  Holder+Subject, or Controller+Subject

Or even, go to having four roles rather than 3, so that it becomes 
something like:

1. Issuer
2. Controller
3. Subject
4. Evaluator

Role 3 isn't used if there's only 1 entity for both; but it can be 
issued at any time by the Controller as a pseudonym.

?
