Actually, ERT WG doesn't (yet) have an XML schema for EARL and/or the 
HTTP stuff -it is currently all in RDF. However, it seems that this and 
potentially other groups would need such XML schemas so it may make 
sense for ERT WG to look into creating one.

I don't think we need to create a new namespace, we should be able to 
reuse the currently existing EARL/HTTP elements. What I mean is an XML 
schema on top of these elements (that are currently described in RDF).

Yes, I hope I did too. Maybe Jo can confirm what his initial thoughts 
were too...
