You don't have to worry about the consistency of the controlfile in archivelog mode. When PIT-recovering, mount your current controlfile if available or restore any controlfile backup taken after the database backup (even if it was a "long time" later provided it contains your backup piece information - assuming you're in nocatalog mode).
