tested with the sample data attached above - works as expected now.

tested changing the tags to mismatch, like so:

<controlaccess>
       <name role="subject">Ney, Frank J.</name>
       <name role="subject">Pearkes, George Randolph</name>
       <persname role="subject">Dorman, Janice</name>
       <corpname role="subject">Artefactual Systems, Inc.</name>
       <famname role="subject">Johnson (family)</name>
       <name role="subject">Johnson, Jack</name>
       <subject>Events and celebrations</subject>
       <geogname>Nanaimo</geogname>
</controlaccess>

AtoM spat out warnings about the mismatched tags, but still assigned each entity the correct entity type, and created an authority record. Where an authority record already existed (Artefactual Systems), it was linked properly.

When the tags matched for persname, corpname, famname, and name, import also worked as expected. Marking verified.
