Overall I see no reason not to publish this, nor why it was not published  
this two months ago as required my our charter.

A couple of comments - none of these should hold back publication, since  
this is a working draft which is in itself meant to allow for further  
comment and refinement.

Agreed that this is not entirely clear.

As I understand this, in the context of following all the discussion, it  
means

  "EARL 1.0 should provide a mechanism through which results which are  
associated with a particular part of the subject can still be localised in  
a machine readable way after some change to the subject".

This might be a case where a few sentences and an example are helpful.
