Ref: <http://www.dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/>

In EARL 1.0 we have an issue that dc:location does not exist. In both earl:Software and earl:WebContent we need to point to a location. The element "identifier" seems to do just that:

* identifier: http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/identifier
"Recommended best practice is to identify the resource by means of a string or number conforming to a formal identification system. Example formal identification systems include the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) (including the Uniform Resource Locator (URL)), the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and the International Standard Book Number (ISBN)."

I've also stumbled over these two definitions which we may want to consider as well:

* URI: http://purl.org/dc/terms/URI
* Software: http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/Software

Comments welcome.
