FYI, nothing is decided yet! ;) These are just a capture of what has
been recently discussed to help track the progress in the schema. The
next steps is that we discuss each change one-by-one, then the
participants of the ERT WG get to vote on a decision.

Anyway, to get to your question, yes I skipped that and should add
dc:language to the earl:message property. Doing...

You get that for free from the uniqueness of URIs. I added rdf:ID to
each earl:assertion so that each assertion is unique *within* a report.
This is in the control of the tool producing the EARL. After that, each
document has a unique URI and the assertion is only a fragment therein.
