I think this might make sense, or, we could do as is suggested on the
wiki page:

Create a Thing->Intangible->Audience->EducationalAudience 

That EducationalAudience could initially have a single added term on top
of what Thing provides called "educationalRole" (or similar). That
educationalRole would take a text value that specifies the specific role
that the group identified by EducationalAudience.

That would mean that anyone who has already begun marking up content
with LRMI would need to modify their markup from:

<span itemprop="intendedEndUserRole">Teacher</span>


<span itemprop="audience" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/EducationalAudience">
<span itemprop="educationalRole">Teacher</span>

(that assumes we get rid of intendedEndUserRole in favor of the Audience

If we did what you suggest ("allow intendedEndUserRole to also (as an
alternative) point to a thing of type http://schema.org/Audience") what
would it look like with a Audience intangible in the place of the
intendedEndUserRole value? I might be misunderstanding some aspect of
the syntax but it would seem it would be more nested than the example I
have above? Am I missing an easy way to model that?
