I think this is intended for section 7 "Reporting" but the notes are not 
very clear about it.

We're having a lot of good discussion and document development, but I couldn't find captured from that discussion anywhere some preliminary metadata for evaluations, like was done for Test Metadata for old W3C Quality Assurance Working Group and for old test samples development task force.  Maybe it's too early yet, but at least we should be brainstorming about such a list, at least for the template appendix?
