If I understand this correctly, ttm:actor[@type='character'] maps to mpeg7:Creator/Character, and  ttm:actor[@type!='character'] maps to mpeg7:Creator/Agent. In addition we know that if an Agent is referenced by a Character, mpeg7:Creator/Role is "actor".

Werner,

there was no requirement to have an element to indicate composer,
director, etc, and that can be handled by private metadata. Thus, we
didn't add them in the specification.
