I have updated the terminology playground with the latest options (be
sure to shift-reload):


The poll has also been updated with the latest options:


Important changes:

* An additional role has been added for "Subject". This is an attempt
  to address Steven Rowat, Dave Longley, and David Chadwick (among
  others') concerns around split roles (Subject/Presenter).

* The number of options for ROLE_C has become so large that it will
  most likely lead to bad polling results. I suggest that we start
  aggressively culling the ROLE_C list before the vote starts
  tomorrow. We should get some strong arguments against roles that you
  feel should not be in the running.

As a reminder, this is how we suggested that the poll is conducted last
week (with added detail):

1. We finalize the poll during the VCWG call tomorrow. For ROLE_C,
   we will hopefully remove options that at least 25% of folks don't
   think are in their personal top 5 list.
2. The poll will run for seven days and close 5pm ET July 4th.
3. Anyone that has educated themselves on the options should vote. If
   you haven't been following at least one of: the issues, mailing list
   discussion, or the calls, please don't vote. For example, please
   don't circulate the poll to your work colleagues that don't
   participate in the WG or CG and ask them to vote.
4. If you vote, you are asked to vote in an individual capacity and not
   on behalf of your organization. We want terminology that is both
   correct and that will immediately resonate with readers.
5. The poll will be used to inform the decision on terminology. In the
   best case, we'll just use the poll results directly. However, if the
   vote results in a combination of terms that does not make sense,
   then the group will use the preference ordering from the vote to
   select a set that does make sense. If the group fails to do that,
   the Chairs and Editors will pick something (as a last resort).
