Kevin: I agree with Debbie, that's a great suggestion.

In looking over the taxonomy quickly just now, I see that they consistently
refer to the various contribution "roles". So perhaps using <role> to contain
an author's contribution is the most appropriate way to go, especially given
that the JATS tagging guidelines specifically say that <role> might be used to
indicate something like "principal author", which reflects a contribution as
opposed to a job title.

Thanks very much for pointing me in this direction.

I can't speak to the choice of these approaches, but I'd like to suggest that
in giving the various types of contributions, you draw from this recently
developed taxonomy:
