Hi Carlos,

What about if browsers would support the user preferences such as "do
not display pages with flickering content" or "use high contrast style
sheets for pages with low color contrast"?

That means that the EARL reports and WCAG checkpoints (or even tests)
are not directly visible to the end-users. Wendy made the analogy to RSS
which is a transparent, machine-readable technology.

Of course, we are a long way away from this but maybe EARL could provide
a mechanism to realize such things. It will then be easier for the
browser developers to implement these features.
