This is one of the major goals of the group that is clruentry authoring the next major revision of EAD. Unfortunately Mark Matienzo isn't going to be at LOD-LAM (last I heard), so he can't tell you more about what the EAD working group is up to. In developing EADitor, an XForms-based approach to creating really complex finding aids using next-gen web forms, one of my chief goals is controlled vocabulary service interactivity. So far users can tap into LCSH and geonames. I think it's important to establish firm controlled vocabulary out of the box so that relationships between objects and collections can be made more easily, especially if you have a user interface that can use these terms as search facets. The open endedness of @type in EAD can be a blessing or curse, depending on usage. You're definitely right about that.
