Carsten's answer was incorrect.  The default authentication manager is 
now the GroupBasedProfileManager. This first looks at the user, then the 
group and then the global definition. Roles aren't used at all here. 
Unfortunately, authenticate.xsl doesn't copy the group so in actuality 
you only can have a user and a global profile.

To get role based layouts you need to use the 
AuthenticationProfileManager.  Just find GroupBasedProfileManager and 
replace it with AuthenticationProfileManager in cocoon.xconf.  However, 
even then the order is user, role, global - not role, user, global.

instead of "portal-role-NAME_OF_ROLE.xml" works as expected. The user with the according role
is defined in "sunrise-user.xml".
