What does "certified" mean at all? That sounds like some kind of
certifying authority exists, which is not the case. The binaries are
built and supported by these various companies. "self-certify" is kind
of an oxymoron in my book.

I'm certainly open to re-phrasing by the companies with these
binaries. I just wanted to get rid of the concept of the "certified"
concept. And if the community thinks the term "certified" is okay...
then we can put it back. But I think it is very misleading.

Maybe there is another word that better expresses what you're thinking
by "certified"?

Cheers,
