On the face of it CEI would seem to be for encoding the _content_ of
charters (an edition / transcription), whereas EAD is for encoding a
_description_ of archived material. So a mapping between CEI and EAD is
not really appropriate.
Regarding Richard's complaint about where the information about a
subordinate items may occur within a description, the situation could
probably be improved by the use of linking elements (ref, archref) to
explicitly reference "the following confirmation".
