How would this then be done for a situation (fairly common) where the 
roleObject has more than one role? An easy example is a person who was 
both an actor and a director in a film. (or: actor/director/writer; for 
a book: writer/illustrator; for dance: dancer/choreographer... etc.) 
Because "characterName"is at the upper level, it looks like an entirely 
new role description needed. True? The question is similar for multiple 
persons/agents in a role: for a movie with three writers, are three 
descriptions required?

Whatever the answers are to those questions, I think adding a few such 
cases to examples would be helpful.
