As I understand it, EAD 2002 eliminated "single" as an attribute.
Anything that would have been a single date will take "inclusive" instead.

However, the EAD Tag Library only mentions bulk and inclusive (see http://www.loc.gov/ead/tglib/elements/unitdate.html ).
> Is 'single' in fact a legitimate option for the 'type' attribute? Since the RLG BP also says the type attribute is mandatory, we've just been using type=inclusive for all dates regardless, but now that I've noticed this in the RLG doc, it's made me wonder.
