The <subjectRelHeader> element specifies the roles played by subjects in associations.

You use the <subjectRelHeader> element to supply a header row for a subject relationship table when you want to identify the roles played by the subjects in each column. Each cell in the header row identifies a subject topic that defines a role. When specializing the <subjectRelTable> element, you can accomplish the same purpose by specializing the cells within the rows to enforce the roles.
