Hi Alan,

Thanks for your interest in EARL. I'm curious what you would like to use 
it for, and if there is an implementation under development that you may 
be sharing some time in the future. Please find some feedback below.

Yes, most current implementation follow older drafts but we hope this 
will change soon. Actually DanC and other have started to work with the 
current draft.

Looks good except the assertor class. Firstly, the dc:description 
belongs in the result if it describes the outcome of the test. As you 
have it now, it is not guaranteed to be processed by EARL-compliant parsers.

Secondly and more importantly, you don't specify a test for the 
assertion. You need to specific what are you testing for, and point to 
it using a URI.
