Good to see you on this list. I really like your points about context
rather than description. I've been thinking about that a lot lately,
particularly irt the lod-lam ramifications and potential of EAC-CPF.
Also could be influenced by having just seen Daniel Pitti talk for 2
hours on the topic early this week, and having seen a quick lightening
talk by Brian Tingle on SNAC (Social Networks and Archival Context) 
at c4l11 last month.
I think pulling that bio-type info out of pseudo-descriptions of
archival records themselves makes it much more broadly useful, and that
info is some of the richest entity metadata our communities have. I'm
still trying to wrap my head around the LOCAH  approach to see if its
modeling is compatible with this separation, but I'd expect so.
Some of the SNAC related slides from Daniel's talk were very similar to
the ones he used in a previous talk last fall.  While I wish the SNAC
stuff were more linkable from the outside, at least they're linking out,
if only to VIAF.
