There's a typo: "earl;assertedBy"

I wonder if we should recommend using the new earl:passed/failed instead of the old earl:pass/fail IRIs. I think I've updated my code to handle both forms, but haven't actually tested it yet.

I'd also like to add text to request that earl submissions include DOAP data for at least the name and homepage of the implementation.

The date is correct: the page doesn't reflect recent changes to the test suite. Another script in my implementations report repo generates that page, and I can rerun it to produce an updated version.

Sure. Do you have a preference on license? Does the W3C? I have none.

As well as format tests for JSON and CSV/TSV.

Otherwise, this looks good to me.
