[Archivesspace_Users_Group] MODS export problems

We have a database that uses MODS records exported from Archivists'
Toolkit. In testing ArchivesSpace we've recognized significant differences
in the MODS markup. Here are some of the issues we've seen:

   - Not parsing out dates
   - Subjects are missing
   - Language value is missing
   - Creators in elements missing
   - The file version data are missing

I've attached  ArchivesSpace and AT files for the same record. I've also
confirmed that the record in AS has all of the same data as the AT object.
It just isn't marking it up in the MODS record. Is anyone else experiencing
this problem? Is this by design or maybe it isn't in this release? I am
using AS 1.4.2. Thanks in advance for shedding light on this matter.
