[Eac-l] EAC DTD error

Per-Gunnar Ottosson has pointed out to me that the @type values on <eac> in 
the beta dtd are different from the values listed in the Tag Library. After 
a bit of discussion, we concluded that the Tag Library is correct and the 
DTD (and thus the two schemas) are in error.

We would like to change the values in the DTD from:

corpname | persname | famname


corporatebody | person | family

The logic: an EAC instance describes the corporate body, person, or family, 
and not the name, as such.

Does anyone have any counter arguments to this correction?
