The attributes key or ref, inherited from the class att.canonical may be used to indicate the kind of responsibility in a normalized form, by referring directly (using ref) or indirectly (using key) to a standardized list of responsibility types, such as that maintained by a naming authority, for example the list maintained at http://www.loc.gov/marc/relators/relacode.html for bibliographic usage.
