     No consensus
      was reached so no decisions are recorded.   We don't 
      record everything that
      is said at a 4 hour teleconf.  We used to try to take 
      notes but they were short, incomplete and not really what 
      people said.  Later people were
      criticized for things they didn't say.   And people made 
      reference to things
      the 'group' said when it in fact didn't say that. Someone 
      said that - or in some cases - no-one said that.  it was 
      just what the note taker who was pounding away on their 
      keyboard typed from snippets the could catch as the 
      conversation ran ahead.  Also, it took someone out of the 
      call since they had to do non-stop typing. 

I hate to ask the question but can you be productive for 4 hours on a
conference call? My two brains cells start to argue with each other after
around 3 hours. I agree that documenting issues, tasks and resolutions is
far more productive.
      At the meeting we told Sorcha that her comments on this 
      would be added to the open issue.  
      This has been done.  See 
Apologies for not spotting this. I was looking for an issue with WCL XG,
Content Label or RDF-CL in the title.

For the record, EARL is a language and doesn't refer to 'Content Labels'.
Content Labels refers to the WCL XG i.e.. the proposed replacement for PICS.
PICS is an old W3C recommendation that doesn't do most of the Semantic stuff
that RDF can do. 

In response to your question "By the phrase 'provide machine-readable
conformance claims' does this
mean to display conformance claims in a machine-readable format?", the
answer is yes.

Clear as mud?
