Trying to get back on track ... here's what I've been able to glean  
from the conversation so far:

Certification is a contentious issue, with many pros and cons in  
either side of the issue.

It seems like any initiative to develop certification will be directed  
by larger enterprises seeking to get some standardization into their  
hiring process.

Current developers, at least those who have participated so far, see  
little reason or benefit to participate at the moment, although this  
could change.

Any barriers to entry caused by such a cert can be overcome by care  
and feeding of our current quality metrics. This might change over time.

And so the next step, as far as I can see, is to wait for an  
announcement by a Large drupal organization of such a certification...
