Does the GOP Pledge Propose to Ban Earmarks?

This is a question, not an editorial.  I read the Pledge document pretty fast, and did not think I saw anything referring to earmarks one way or the other.  Is there something in there about that I did not see, or is it referred to under other terms?  Here it is in pdf at RealClearPolitics.

Update: The Friday, September 24, 2010 WSJ has a news story by Janet Hook and Naftali Bendavid that gives a good summary of the pledge and debates among the GOP over what to include and what not, and a discussion of the earmark issue.  Also this article by Neil King in the same Friday WSJ specifically on rifts within the GOP over earmarks.  Both good news stories.
