I personally wouldn't use enums for roles - unless perhaps you're persisting user roles as enums.  Of course there's no problem doing this, you just need to call Identity.addRole(myEnum.toString()) in your authenticator method.  I could modify the addRole() method to accept an Object instead of a String, the only difference being that it would call toString() on whatever object you pass in.  

In the other areas of the security API, I can't really see any advantage doing this though, especially since the security expressions only work with string values anyway.
