Indeed, it is a tricky issue. Should we implement some form of earl:confidence property then we must ensure we have a mechanism to aggregate it. For example, by defining reasonable data types. However, I don't think that the aggregation "policy" should be part of EARL. Not even part of WCAG.

It may make a lot of sense to release a Working Group Note or similar document on a possible strategy for using the earl:confidence property in the context of WCAG (if we should implement it), but EARL should be not limited to that one use case.

Do you share the same view?

Regards,
  Shadi
