Instead of defining something by listing it's membership (which includes 
everyone and then folks might ask what's the point -- I have a similar 
question with "none"?) It's good to define things with an identifier, 
expected behaviour, and conformance. Also, this is an opportunity to 
reflect how you want others to define their roles when they develop them...

Role Name:
	next
Identifier:
	http://www.w3.org/2002/06/soap-envelope/role/next
Definition
	Any SOAP node that receives and processing a SOAP message as defined
	in section 2.6 
Conformance:
	By definition, all SOAP nodes except the originating node MUST
	conform to this role.

Role Name:
	Ultimate SOAP receiver
Identifier:
	http://www.w3.org/2002/06/soap-envelope/role/ultimateReceiver
Definition
	[Defined in 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-soap12-part1-20020626/#senderreceiverconcepts 
]
Conformance:
	[Spread throughout the document.]
