In the balance between simplicity & understandability for web masters and keeping the numbers of properties manageable, we should be conservative in adding any more than a few as listed above.

I would be pretty keen to have actors in movies :) but I agree that it is important to keep it simple, and based on real use cases for people who are going to publish.

That said, I am keen to see translationOf / hasTranslation and would like to see a translator Role.

(I think the sticking point on translation is about the difference between identifying the thing translated and the translation, or between noting that there *is* a translation without specifying which is the original...)

> Beyond that using Role for other creator / contributor roles should be the order of the day.

Yes, that seems to make sense.

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]
