Apparently, I overlooked an issue here.

In the previous working draft of EARL, we had "pass", "fail", 
"cannotTell", "notApplicable" and "notTested" [1]. The values for 
locations@expectedResult in both TCDL 1.0 and TCDL 2.0 were "pass", 
"fail", "cannotTell" and "notApplicable" [2], so they mapped 
perfectly to the values in EARL. If I remember correctly, the 
previous version of the database design used these values to support 
easy mapping between TCDL and the database [3].
The values in the current editor's draft are "passed", "failed", 
"cantTell", "inapplicable" and "untested" [4].
Why should we have to change the values in our database if the goal 
was to have interoperability with the TCDL format?
