Yes, it is possible to rewrite my XSLT templates into Schematron rules 
(and some other constraint languages as well), but I am not volunteeing 
either ;-). I think that making a hierarchy of XSLT files would be easier. 
At least XSLT has a wider tool support than Schematron and is a W3C 
recommendation by itself. Anyway, can you give us some reference that 
explains how Schematron rules can generate EARL reports by default?

Best regards.
