Shuaib suggested:

5.    Some accessibility tests can be dependant on various factors such as
location or device. In other words the Outcome Value may be due to one or
more of those factors. It would be beneficial to capture these context
elements. Therefore, earl:context may also include the device
(http:Resource), because the tests / test results may also vary with
different devices. In that case, would it make sense to place “context”
outside of earl:content too?

Hmmm. I think the context is not very well described. It is actually "information about what content was tested" - the HTTP settings, or similar (including anything like particular devices or environmental conditions, although we don't have a vocabulary for those like we do for HTTP - we could use an RDF-ised version of WURFL/WALL for devices, ...). It is an integral part of the Content, and may in fact be all that we know, so I think it does belong where it is.

But we should explain it better. I don't have a good concrete suggestion yet :(

cheers
