However this leads to the point of usability - Is an average user
willing to spend the extra time creating the two sets of contributors
both pointing to the same foaf:Persons - one defining the ordering and
one defining the types? By not ordering the contributors, this
information may be lost in particular where the ordering of the
contributors infers the level of contribution. 

The ideal that I am striving for would be a combination of the two. 
With the type of contributor specified within the ordered list. While
slightly more verbose this seems to do the trick:
<rdf:RDF>
  <bib:Citable>
    <bib:Contributors rdf:parseType="Resource">
          <rdf:li rdf:parseType="Resource">
<marcrel:aut rdf:resource="#Kamereddine" /></rdf:li>
         <rdf:li rdf:parseType="Resource"><marcrel:aut
rdf:resource="#Nederpelt" /></rdf:li>
      
    </bib:Contributors>

   </bib:Citable>
