I walked away with several challenges to noodle. The biggest is that
notion that certification requires being closed while OWASP is
fundamentally open. I think I have some ideas that I will blog shortly.

AFAIK, the certification project has been put on hold as the result of
OWASP EU Summit 2008.

Though James said he'd continue the pursuit but I'm not sure if it is
under the OWASP name or something else.
