[Standards-JIG] Changing default role of a user(JEP0045)

Hi,

  The JEP 0045 defines some default roles for the users based on the
affiliations and the configuration of the rooms. Can a admin user change
the default roles?
Consider the following request:

<iq from='crone1 at shakespeare.lit/desktop'
    id='member1'
    to='darkcave at macbeth.shakespeare.lit'
    type='set'>
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/muc#admin'>
    <item affiliation='none'
	  role='visitor'
          jid='hag66 at shakespeare.lit'/>
  </query>
</iq>

Here darkcave is a unmoderated room and the admin user is trying to set
a 'none' affiliation alongwith a default role as 'visitor' for user
hag66 at shakespeare.lit. JEP 45 does not have any examples to show that it
can be done niether are their any statements denying this. Can anyone
confirm my findings?
If people on this forum agree on this way of setting the default roles
then it will be good to update the JEP with some examples.

Thanks,
Rahul
