Hi Bryan,

Thank you for your comments. Indeed, we are currently working on a 
supporting document for EARL called "Pointer Methods in RDF". Please 
find a very early editor's draft, we will be refining it and hope to 
publish it in due course:
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/Pointers/WD-Pointers-20070222>

Note that we welcome participation and contribution to this work. For 
more information on opportunities to get involved, see the document "How 
WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process", and 
contact me if you have comments or questions:
  - <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/w3c-process>

Regards,
   Shadi
