The Profiles Affinity Group has also experimented with using this. Ideally, the domain and range would simply be removed.

Have you put in an issue on LC's BF editor github site?

Subject: [BIBFRAME] bf:role question
In BIBFRAME, the property bf:role is used only with bf:Contribution.

We find we want to use bf:role with bf:ProvisionActivity (and its sub-classes) to clarify the roles of agents in the provision activities. Is there any possibility of extending the rdfs:domain to include bf:ProvisionActivity?

What we do now: add a note to the provision activity and use bf:provisionActivity/bf:note/rdfs:label to describe the role (with a bf:note/bf:noteType="role"); then we describe the agent of the provisionactivity as a contributor, allowing us to use bf:role and an LC relator IRI as its value. It seems like an awkward solution.
