Given that a namespace can be a single letter and a colon and that the 
main costs in using role are in getting commitment to the concept that 
it might be useful and thinking about sensible values for each 
attribute, or in choosing a high level authoring tool that does it all 
for you, my feeling is that including the namespace will act as a small 
extra deterrent to the tendency to embrace and extend, with negligible cost.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
