Is there a reason for this inconsistency of the import of @role attribute for dao / doloc ? 

On <dao>, @role is assigned to use_statement 


While on <doaloc>, @role is assigned to file_format_name:


The first case it a lot more useful for us, while file_format_name is usually identifiable from the filename in href and is redundant. ( We would like @role to indicate if the URI is a pointer to IIIF image service or manifest, or a link to digital object in another system, rather than merely a link to an image. The 2nd case might be better represented internally as external_ids, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to get them in and out with an EAD mapping, or a way to enter and edit them in the frontend. ) 

— Steve.
