I think you misunderstand what is currently going on. The data IS in
the database on the Roles field. The only thing missing is validation
on that field to ensure Aaron doesn't enter the wrong text. Since its
Aaron entering the text and not some random idiot from the general
public, I'm not going to make a big deal out of validating it.

Another option, for anyone interested in patching it, would be to add
the users to groups and select the proper list from that. OR you could
paint the bikeshed blue. It works now, the number of people entered
into this list is typically pretty low, and I have a whole shitload of
bug reports that I could be addressing instead, if only I could view
