 1786 Suggest using EARL for conformance claims 

conformance section should refer to the possibility of using EARL to
provide machine-readable conformance claims.
 
[PW] Perhaps the group would consider using the output of the W3C's first
incubator activity for conformance claims?
That is, the Web Content Label (WCL) [1]. The Mobile Web Initiative (MWI)
mobileOK Trustmark
will come in the form of a Content Label, with no visual icons to represent
conformance. 
 
It makes sense to me to use EARL for recording test descriptions, test cases
etc. and a Content Label
to make conformance claims. Content Labelling is becoming increasingly
popular by many
associations that have their own code of conduct, so there are numerous real
use cases within the industry already. 
 
I'm interested to hear the groups thoughts on this one - I know Shadi might
have a different opinion :)
 
Cheers
Paul
