You bring up a good point Jon. While the approval process can be tedious, especially for the developers and tech folk, it fares well with the "higher ups." Just like the Intel Inside, Windows logos, and now the RedHat logo, they love to see some branding - something that says "we certify this will work, and if it doesn't, it may cost you more money but we'll fix it".
Maybe we should startup the NYPHP p2ee approval process :)
