I would take this in broad discussion and hoarmonize with other 
predicates/suggested predicates. 
Somewhere in medicalEntity proposal we were suggesting having a predicate 
like 'playsRole':

    <div typeof="rdf:Property" resource="http://schema.org/playsRole">
      <span class="h" property="rdfs:label">playsRole</span>
      <span property="rdfs:comment">Specifying the role played by an agent 
      <span>Domain: <a property="http://schema.org/domainIncludes" href="
      <span>Range: <a property="http://schema.org/rangeIncludes" href="

Maybe can this be better than 'hasRole/hasRoles'. This is something needed 
in several model but I will comment again on this later, ... am still 
investigating the new 'Role' proposal to see how it fits there.

Subject:        Re: schema.org Roles design

Hi Dan,

I was hoping for a schema for Role that is capable of modeling an entity's 
role with a service.

For example, a schema that could handle the various Roles (such as 
contributor, guest, etc ) for the users of the service that is behind this 
very discussion. 

This would be useful for policies on the service that can for example, 
automatically reject user actions (such as this post) according to the 
policy for the role of the user on the service.

In this scenario, an agent has multiple roles that are likely to be 
different for each service.

Thus, my suggestion is to:
      consider hasRoles i.e. multiple Roles for each entity
      consider examples of Roles associated with services
