It's optimized for an attack aircraft, I thought, since it lacks agility and thrust to weight,as an air superiority design.

Helps define the role if we know what it can do.

The F-22s were reported to be aerial scouts in Syria recently.

This sounds similar to the sensor/shooter combo you mentioned for the J-20.

I would be cautious about declaring its role. The eurofighter, rafale, su-35, etc all have worse thrust to weight ratios. While none are fifth gen, the sample size for fifth gen is rather small as yet.
