I was under the impression that creative works would be able to use the 
"roles" pattern that was discussed [1].  Right now, CreativeWork has 
author, creator, and contributor. Although there are a handful of common 
creative roles that come to mind (editor, translator, illustrator), the 
actual number blossoms quickly when you move beyond books. Movies have a 
huge number of creative roles; music also has quite a few (librettist, 
composer, performer, lead singer...). The roles list used by the Library 
of Congress gives an idea of the magnitude of the problem. [2]
