Ah, heh, now getting caught up...

I think lack of roles might not be that important if we're talking about debugging or refactoring tools, but it'll be painful when you talk about orchestrating the work of more than a few developers and stakeholders into an ALM. What will happen is that ALF providers will define their own role system, because they have to, and then reconciling them later on could end up being very painful. I wasn't at the call and respect that decisions can't wait for everyone to chime in, but perhaps we can head this off by allowing those who do want to standardize roles within ALF some place to go do that as an optional or separate part of the system?
