Standard roles vs Site roles

I have some doubts about how to use site roles.
I'm not sure to correctly understand when to use the role Consumer Site (sitePermissionDefinition.xml) rather than the standard role Consumer (permissionDefinition.xml).

Assuming that the correspondence between these two role types is:
    Consumer -> Site Consumer
    Editor -> /
    Contributor -> Site Contributor
    Collaborator -> Site Collaborator
    Manager -> Site Manager
I think I should use the site roles when I working within a site, but what's the difference?
What happend if I use standard roles (Consumer, Editor…) instead of site roles (in a site context)?

In my case though in a context site I would give to a user both editor and contributor role so I believe the only solution is to use standard roles and I would like to know if there is some implication.
