Generally I think these parameters for the label look good. I want to be certain that the energy cost is for the entire amount of electricity consumed while the lamp is in the socket.
Regarding "Light Appearance" I think Kelvin and CRI may be too technical at least initially. I would like to see this reference how the particular lamp compares to light from a traditional 100W warm incandescent or to the Kelvin/CRI of sunlight. People are trying to get the best replacement for what we're already familiar with.
