Thinking outloud:

a] make the role specifier an extensible declaration itself, perhaps
profiling some specific roles for now (as IDP.SP,AA)

b] extend the valuelist to at least accomodate all other potential
actors described in SAML 2.0 (thinking of things like PDP,PEP, etc...
which may, at some point, have usefull metadata statements about them)

c] There is a grouping option in the liberty spec (affiliations), which
conveys (minimal) metadata about the members, we should maintain that.

sorry if this was covered in the call, a small local crisis pulled me
out of the focus call.
