Create archival description, and add a creator.
Save archival description.
Export with EAD.

Resulting Error:
EAD event type defaults to <controlaccess><corpname role="[value]">XXXX

Expected Result / Suggested Fix:
EAD event type defaults to <controlaccess><name role="[value]">XXXX

In the ISAAR record edit template, the User selects from the TYPE drop-down list: corporate, person, family. The authority record is updated and the related archival description is updated so that exported EAD event type now reads <corpname> or <famname> or <persname>.

Note: though the effect is the same in each template, in the RAD template the <corpname role=""> tag is derived from the "Actor name" in the Dates of Creation Area, when the Event Type is set to creation. In ISAD, this is derived from the "Name of creator" field in the Context Area.
