can you be  more specific Drew... separating a description of a 
process/activity from a participant centric view sound very appealing to 
me... and is what we usually do when mapping business and other 
processes.  We describe the process and then say who/what can perform 
various things.   Indeed when dynamically assigning participants/performers 
this would seem to be essential.
