Right. We do not have IDs for earl:Software so using dc:identifier is probably not a good idea. We already have dc:title, dc:description, and dct:hasVersion. We should find something that describes the home page for the software, I imagine FOAF or VCard may be more appropriate than dc:URI.

What about earl:WebContent? dc:identifier seems to be more stable than dc:URI. It is also generic enough that we could consider it as optional properties for earl:TestSubject and/or earl:Assertor classes too. Any thoughts on this?

Best,
  Shadi
