You have low confidence that the result is pass, and medium confidence  
that the result is not applicable.

This seems to me one of the more useful applications of confidence, and  
doesn't rely on interoperating with someone else's use of the term. It's  
also not clear what it would mean if you had two different assertions with  
different results - are you saying that you are not sure of the result and  
using confidence to clarify?
