Well, there may be the problem right there.

Of course they assign all the roles. And Nuendo and Protools can read them allright, but often they don't match the roles they have in FCPX. Music tracks are assigned as "Dialogue" all of a sudden. Or left and right tracks are very far apart (one on track 2 and the other on track 46). Plus they have the trouble of LOTS of tracks. Tracks you don't use in editing or even switch off, but it gets sent to the sound editing suite anyway. Often caused by split edits (and working with 8 tracks per audio clip, the stack gets pretty high very quickly).

Now, I am just relaying stuff here I see editors and sound editors struggling with. I don't make AAF's in FCPX (or X2Pro) to be accurate. But I do see what ends up in the sound editing software.

That being said... I do think FCPX would benefit greatly if you could make the AFF IN FCPX, where only the actual audio used gets exported.
