I agree. I was similarly surprised by (on the wiki) the requirement to
use .glade files as a possibility for one level; surely this
certification should be about the user experience, not coding practises.

This leads to a few modifications to the ideas suggested on the wiki;
for example, "Uses gnome-vfs" would be "Is able to open and save files
to/from any http:, ftp:, smb:, nfs: (others?) url." Which amounts to a
similar thing, but is based on how much a user would care.

Basing the certification on library usage could lead to a situation
where the certification only matters to someone thinking of hacking on
the project!
