It seems that the role labels should be completely optional on the forms, as the meaningful information is captured in the role types. Fortunately, ingested roles without labels seem to display correctly on the page.

I'm currently importing presentations and publications in a brand new VIVO (1.6 RC3). There are some required fields which I don't completely understand.
1. Why is "Role in Presentation" a required field? Wouldn't it be enough if it's optional?
2. Same with "Role in Organization" for leadership entries (head of).
3. Same with "member of". Isn't that already a role?
In almost every case in my very small database the "Role in" property is not necessary. Or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance!
