RE: 16 March 2006 Minutes

Hello, Paul. I'll just jump in here.

The Working Group did *not* reach a definitive decision yesterday about
referencing either EARL or WCL. The group felt that we did not yet have
enough information to reach a sound decision on this important matter.

Therefore, we decided to leave the issue open pending further
investigation. We welcome  additional information about WCL, RDF-CL,

I did read the statement about the WCL Incubator Activity that you sent
us the other day. If I understood it correctly, the W3C has not yet
approved WCL. Again, if I understood the document correctly, the XG's
aim is to explore the options for a new content labeling scheme; one of
the options under consideration is to consider whether the existing
RDF-CL is adequate for the purpose. If my understanding is incorrect,
please let me know!

To reiterate: the issue remains open. We welcome information that will
help us learn more.

Thanks so much!

I'm unable to speak with Sorcha because our HQ are out partying (St.
Patrick's Day!). So, can you please direct me to the section of the
minutes that document Segala's request to reference the use of Content
Labels for conformance claims? I notice you've included EARL, but I'm
unable to find Content Labels.

I've CC'd David because he's a member of the ERT group and Jo as he's a
member of the WCL group with David.

Kind regards,
