This is indeed one of the EARL use cases which we have been discussing  
within the group, to supplement Web pages with the EARL reports that  
express which tests have been carried out on it. User Agents and search

Yes, we have recently reconvened the Working Group and are resuming work.  
We hope to publish both the Requirements document as well as an updated  
Schema for EARL in the near future. Once published, they will be announced  
for review.
