Subject: Multiple different types of authors

Greetings again.  

I am currently porting a legacy project in DocBook from custom XSLT scripts 
that I wrote to the DocBook XSL project.  That means I need to undo and 
refactor some ignorant hacks I made originally. :-)

One of them is that each article in my book has multiple authors, in different 
positions.  How would I differentiate a "primary author", "contributing 
authors", etc.?  In the old code I was abusing the role attribute of 
<authorgroup>, but of course by default that's ignored by the DocBook XSL 
setup.  What's the best way to denote them, semantically and 

(Ideally I'd like to have a series of lists going across the page in the final 
output, something like:)

Primary      Contributing
----------       -----------------
Joe              Frank
Bob             Steve

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
