Sorry for the delayed response but just returned from a vacation.
I'm CCing the Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group as I think that 
they may be more qualified to answer the questions you have. As I said on 
the phone, EARL is not targeted at non-web environments at this time and 
it would be difficult, I think, for the group to consider expanding the 
scope of the specification to cover the key requirements you seem to imply 
in this sample document. They are, however, taking comments for the LC 
working draft so now would be a good time to introduce this topic.

If you could provide the group with a brief synopsis of your requirements 
and our phone conference, that would probably be helpful.

Subject:        EARL - Standard for Test result reporting across Hursley


subsequent to the call a couple of weeks ago, I've now been able to put 
together a rough translation of our existing Test Run XML into
the EARL Vocabulary. Having finally got my head around it, the whole thing 
looks to map well together, so I'd be appreciative if you could
give me some early feedback as to whether or not I'm heading in the right 

My intention would be to extend our existing system to consume this 
standard as soon as practicable so that we can get it rolled out to
as many projects as possible. It would also be practical to provide an 
early conduit across into the Rational Tools prior to efforts they
may make towards supporting such a standard.

If you could give me your comments, and particularly answers to the 2 
questions contained within it, that would be very helpful.
