Course owner isn't a role (and thus being a owner doesn't cause
anythign to apepear in the roles screen), but it looks to me like a
course owner automatically also gets a CC role assigned with no start
or end dates.

Taking a look at batchcoursecreate's code, I'm pretty sure that if you
list the user in the xml as both the course owner and also separately
as a CC with an end date the user will get assigned ownership of the
course, and a CC roles with an expire date set.
(Since the <user> processing is done after the <owner> processing, the
<user> settings should overwrite the <owner> defaults)
