Tags and "Role"

There is a lot of talk about tags, here are some links, once it is geekess only:
More on Technorati tags by Suw
Cheap Eats at the Semantic Web Café by Burningbird
On Tags and Ontologies by Stéphanie
Categories and Meaning by Adina Levin

Well, what do I think about tags? I think they are great, as it is really a bottom-up approach which works, see del.icio.us and technorati.

But I think it could even more powerful by using a role like in Content Model of keyword (see also: keyword in Docbook )

On Portalog, we also let users tag their interests on their about page, here the role is clearly defined.

Somehow we are lacking „role“, but I do not know how to do it yet, without making it too complex again.
