Abelardo,
As far as I know, there isn't any specific element for ISAD 3.7.1, 2 and 3
under <archdesc>. I cannot see the use of <processinfo>, basically because,
in my opinion, author, date and rules are not a part of the items
description, that is to say, are not a part of <archdesc>. Maybe I'm using a
too rough solution, but I believe ISAD 3.7 elements are simply a part of
<eadheader>.
On the other hand, I'm having also similar problems to reconcile EAD and
ISAD, because ISAD is quite basic. In my opinion, if we are not dealing with
any conversion process, we'd better forget ISAD.
