That's very difficult. What is a creator for me may be a contributor for
you. Making this distinction between principal and secondary contributors
can't be easily applied. For example, I may have a book with illustrations
and consider it primarily a textual work, while someone else might
consider be mostly interested in its illustrations. In the first case the
illustrator might be a contributor, while in the second case a creator. It
is all in the eye of the beholder.
