If the markup is domain application specific, use the X in XHTML and
extend XHTML by invoking elements in your own, application 
specific namespace.  Ideally get some industry level agreement on
this, rather than inventing a proprietary one.

In my view, role is for extensions to cover features that are 
very common on web sites, but can be ignored by simple viewers,
without loss of information. Even then, I'm uncomfortable that they
are usurping the X in XHTML.
