RE: CFC: Basic Roles Proposal

So in the example I cited, (3.1.7)  there are three roles (1) comparing (2)  antecedent (3)  subsequent.

The intent of the annotation is to "compare" two passages. I would say the annotation is motivated by "comparing".  

The comparison is "The first passage is a clear derivative of the second".    The roles on the two target resources support the comparison by indicating which is the first and which is the second.   I would say those are the roles that those two resources play in the comparison.

Do you really not think there is a meaningful distinction?
