Giuseppe,

The subtle, but important, difference in Chris' and Jean-Michel's example is that the project owner is managing the work, not the roles.  Roles with clear accountabilities that allow others in the organization what to expect from the role-filler.

Additionally, as you know, role-fillers are obligated (via the constitution) to accept actions and projects that are aligned with their role's purpose and/or accountabilities.
