:-1: We discussed naming, and the argument doesn't bring any new 
evidence, nor do the suggestions capture that the role is the role 
that the body (or target) plays in the Annotation.  It would be 
internally confusing with motivation, which is worse than being 
externally confusing with a mostly unrelated specification.  

We don't have an HTML serialization, and so the risk of conflict is 
zero ... we simply wouldn't use the role attribute.

The role is not intended to strictly be used for specific processing 
or presentation requirements.  That is not stated in the specification
 anywhere.
