Hi Dan,

I was hoping for a schema for Role that is capable of modeling an entity's role with a service.

For example, a schema that could handle the various Roles (such as contributor, guest, etc ) for the users of the service that is behind this very discussion. 

This would be useful for policies on the service that can for example, automatically reject user actions (such as this post) according to the policy for the role of the user on the service.

In this scenario, an agent has multiple roles that are likely to be different for each service.

Thus, my suggestion is to:
      consider hasRoles i.e. multiple Roles for each entity
      consider examples of Roles associated with services
