Have you looked at the Web Accessibility Initiative's developing work
on EARL?  Evaluation and Repair Language or something like that (they
are not quite sure themselves last time I checked) -- it is an RDF-
based language for making statements about compliance of a document
against one or more specifications.

It started as a tool for web accessibility but has broader applications
that could be used throughout the W3C, including having the validator
produce EARL reports (which could be combined with Bobby reports, hand
evaluations, and so on).

Here's the EARL web page on W3C:

Here's what I wrote about EARL last month:
