That's _exactly_ what I had in my mind (though the text is diagonal'd the  
other direction. Ie I thought to go from from top left to bottom right.

Screen readers will get ALT texts for images -- the role names themselves.  
Every role name will be a separate transparent image (IE only has problem  
with 8 bit alpha channel PNGs or so I think).

That mockup is beautiful. Comments, please!
