You mean that the role description could be left empty because it
could always be deduced from tags on the member? I guess it could be
possible, but I think it is much much better to have an explicit role
descriptions, foremost for the benefit of the next mapper who comes
along and wants to improve and edit the relation. So that he can
clearly see what the intention is with the different members.
