The code of the MoDisco role feature has been commited into the MoDisco SVN.
The MoDisco role feature introduced the "role" concept. A role is a kind
of virtual class extension. Those "virtual classes" will never have
instances. An object can be conform to a role but can not be an instance
of a role.
For example, assuming we have a class named Employee and two roles:
"Manager" and "Developer". We will have a set of Employee instances and
some of them will have the role of "Manager" or "Developer".
The goal of role concept introduction is to be able to highlight some
model elements having a specific role.

description is done by editing a model and the use is done through an
API. The main client of this API is the MoDisco browser.
