Summary of Issue: \"machine-readable metadata\" preferred...but do UAs support it?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"Optional components of a conformance claim\", first numbered bullet:

\"This information should be provided in a form that consumers can use, preferably machine-readable metadata.\"

This seems to imply that users CAN actually make use (with current user agents) of this metadata. In practice, how many end-users have a UA that can read, say, EARL or DC accessibility data?

Proposed Change:
Drop the \"preferably machine-readable metadata\" altogether.
