Description

Currently, rule elements beneath a location constraint can have a role attribute. However, the role does not affect rule evaluation in any way, but rather changes the constraint's role filter.

The location constraint itself has a role attribute for that purpose, but it is ignored (and disallowed by the schema) if the constraint has a rule. If a rule in a location constraint has subrules, their role attributes are ignored, which is unexpected behavior.

score behaves simlarly. score-attribute can currently only be used on rule, not rsc_location, but non-rule location constraints could and should support it as well.

Implement score-attribute for location constraints without rules, deprecate all three attributes for rule, change the schema to allow them on rsc_location even if it has a rule, and have any attribute set on rsc_location take precedence over the same attribute set on its rule.
