Conformance certification

The EPUB Accessibility working group is interested in recommending
metadata for conformance statements, such as "the resource meets this
requirement as certified by this person/organization." I don't see
anything similar in Is anyone aware of a good schema for this?
Has it been considered for in the past?

We are aware of Dublin Core "conformsTo" which meets part of the need. And
we are aware of the W3C's attempt at a full-fledged Evaluation and Report
Language (EARL) which has not to my knowledge ever been finalized.

We are wondering if there is a better way, or if other
participants are interested in defining new metadata to handle
this requirement.
