Thanks, Vicki

For this particular point, I actually just meant modifying the web page at http://schema.org/actor (and any other predicates affected by http://schema.org/Role ) to include schema:Role in both the lists that appear on that page, since schema:Role is not yet mentioned on that page.

Authoritative examples of usage (particularly ones that are consistently correct across all three of JSON-LD, RDFa and Microdata) are always good to have - and you could always consider using an 'Accordion' or tabbed user interface to provide the detailed information and examples to users who want that, while keeping the page relatively free from clutter for those who don't want to see too much detail at one glance.

Just a thought…

Best wishes,
