I have likewise wondered what Margaret's role in the novel is? She is given very little characterization. And, in the first chapter alone, the two sisters (Elinor and Marianne) are sufficiently set up as foils for each other.
Most authors do not include a character for no reason at all (even Dickens with his host of characters has a purpose for each character). But maybe since this is one of Austen's early works, she is still mastering her craft.
