This is a personal review, made in response to a request from the SWBPD 
WG, in response to a request from ERT WG.


    EARL 1.0 will provide mechanisms to relate test results with the
specific location within the subject that triggered the result where
  I suggest that requirement F02 should be demoted from "will" to
"should". This is a complex requirement that would be good to meet,
however I do not believe that EARL would have failed if this requirement
cannot be met, so the lower status of "should" is appropriate.

  I suggest that
    EARL 1.0 may support backward compatibility of the language with
previous versions published in earlier Working Drafts.
  be listed as a non-requirement, or not listed at all, since the
rather particularly definition of may, seems to mean non-requirement.

[I assume further prettification comments are not interesting for this
