If you take a look at the web.config settings you can see that you can assign different functions to different roles. For example:
<add key="AdministratorRoles" value="Administrators" />
<add key="NewsPublisherRoleName" value="Publishers" />
<add key="AdManagerRoles" value="AdManager,Administrators" />
<add key="BlogAdministratorRoles" value="Administrators,Publishers" />
<add key="CalendarAdministratorRoles" value="Administrators,Publishers" />
<add key="DiscussionAdministratorRoles" value="Administrators,Publishers" />
<add key="PhotoGalleryAdministratorRoles" value="Administrators,Publishers" />
<add key="NewsEditorRoles" value="NewsEditors" />
The AdManager role allows users to manage the Ad Management section in the MonoX. Users can create an unlimited number of ad campaigns.

NewsEditorRoles allow users to publish news, however users in this role are not able to directly publish articles. This means they have to be approved.

Publisher as you can see has several functions by default. They can administer Discussions, PhotoGallery, Blogs...
