Simon already pointed out one major reason: we can define the semantics
of such things without creating any backwards-compatibility issues,
whereas fooling with the behavior of roles by themselves is likely to
create some issues.
However, this is all 8.5 material in any case, and I'm going to stop
paying attention now because I'm trying to get to 8.4 beta.
