Suggested change:       Incorporate TYPE attribute

Rationale:
To allow more specific description of special materials. This will be particularly useful for
detailed descriptions of individual items, and would, for example, enormously increase the
applicability of EAD to the cataloguing of medieval manuscripts.

example:
<PHYSFACET TYPE="material">Paper</PHYSFACET>
<PHYSFACET TYPE="ruling">Ruled in red ink</PHYSFACET>
<PHYSFACET TYPE="watermarks">Briquet 1234</PHYSFACET>
<PHYSFACET TYPE="binding">Bound in 19th century red leather</PHYSFACET>
