It would, of course, be very useful with more research and an
international project on the issue, but what shall we do in the meantime?
We have earlier proposed a solution similar to that suggested by Peter
Kidd (see http://www.ra.se/nad/datkat2/se_ead.htm).
In our experiments with EAD we are now trying the <bioghist> element
as a container element for data from our authority records, but then we
are in fact inventing rules for that and other elements that are not
intended in EAD. One simple container element for persons and
corporate bodies, that might contain all the control access elements,
would be a simple solution in waiting for the final one (next millennium?).
