Hi there. 
There are plans for a refactor of the agents module including a more complete adherence to the EAC-CPF scheme. A revision of the EAC-CPF specification is in a late draft. Cory Nimer at BYU is leading the charge on that, with comments coming from the community. The development roadmap should acknowledge planned work on this. I hope to see this functionality in 2017 as our organization could definitely use this. 
Best, Jason

Caltech Library and Archives are looking to make more use of the agent/person objects in ArchivesSpace outside of ArchivesSpace itself.  One integration point could be to use common ids like ISNI http://www.isni.org,  VIAF http://viaf.org, or ORCIDs http://orcid.org as identifiers to link content with external systems. Are these on the road map to be included in ArchivesSpaces’ agent model? I think there is a field in EAC that would be used to hold these types of values but AS doesn’t seem to include them.  Am I missing something?

Thanks for the help and guidance,
