I just asked Coralie Mercier, and everything in that name space is frozen after then end of the XG. But I think we should have all the tests for our current spec working by then, hopefully way before so we can make improvements on the spec. In any case ontologies can be extended with other namespaces, so this is not such a problem.

Ah yes, so the test agent that test endpoints can also produce earl.

I think that means that 

>> </webid/test/earl#>

is not a good idea since both are earl files .

Better would be 

</2005/Incubator/webid/earl/server#> // for the initial earl suite I wrote and implemented
</2005/Incubator/webid/earl/client#> // for the earl suite that tests servers that spit out the above

But I have not given the names "server" and "client" much thought. I am sure we can do better.
