Major PC roles?

4.0 argues for four main roles in D&D - the Defender (tank/healer), Leader (healer/buffer), striker (damage-dealer - either range blaster or close-up basher), Controller (uh...not even they've done much to outline this one).

When I'm building my mental D&D party, my roles are:
Negotiator/face
Caster/Blaster
Expert/trapspringer
Tank/Scrapper
Medic/defense

Am I missing anything here? by reducing everyone's character sheets to just combat stats, D&D kind of throws out the expert and "face" role, but they're still necessary in a well-rounded party. However, "face" is almost purely based on player charisma now...
