ROLE should probably be TYPE as is in TEI.

I see three needs when dealing with styling, structure and classing:

1.  inline style language a la <FOO STYLE="CSS: color...">
2.  classes for style purposes <FOO CLASS="sidebar">
3.  structural clases <FOO TYPE="section">

Is there a TEI guru in the house that can pontificate as to whether TEI's REND
attribute encompasses parts of 1 and 2 and/or both.

There are cases when even the most careful stylesheet/class structure cannot
preserve all the information for certain cases where 2 and 3 conflict.
