There *was* some backing and forthing over the names 'participant' and
'person', but both the printed volumes and the current DTDs seem to me
to be consistently using 'person'. Are you sure you have current DTDs?
It sounds as if your copy of teicorp2.dtd may be from a pre-publication
version of the DTD.
Remember, the TEI DTDs are updated periodically to fix problems
discovered or reported. The most recent update before today was last
September, but a new version of the DTDs has just been placed on the
Listserv file server and on the ftp servers at ftp-tei.uic.edu and
ftp.ex.ac.uk. A formal announcement will follow in a separate posting.
