I believe that it is available.  I use the following doctype declaration and
my documents parse against it (at least they did a month ago, I haven't
checked them lately):

<!DOCTYPE ead PUBLIC "+//ISBN 1-931666-00-8//DTD ead.dtd (Encoded Archival
Description (EAD) Version 2002)//EN"
"http://lcweb2.loc.gov/xmlcommon/dtds/ead2002/ead.dtd" [
]>
