Role is a type of Page used for grouping permissions to users.

Any given User will have one or more roles, each with zero or more permissions assigned to it. Note that most public API-level access checking is typically performed from the User rather than the Role(s), as it accounts for the combined roles. Please also see User, Permission and the access related methods on Page.
