Well, increase market pressure on EARL adoption by "imposing" it with a new "accessibility conformity logo" that requires some kind of EARL justification it's not a good idea for me (besides all the potential hurdles).

I think that the best way to increase the adoption of a specification is to make really useful this specification through new and attractive characteristics that add value not through "imposition".
