you are suggesting risky waters there... imagine if the website is defaced 
and the OWASP badge is sitting at the bottom of their site?

also, that would mean continuosly monitoring these websites as new 
vulnerabilities are discovered.

Mcafee already run into trouble thanks to their Hacker Safe certificate...

I had another half-baked idea for a 2009 project and wanted to get 
reactions from others. Many folks are aware that Barack Obama raised a lot 
of money for his Presidential campaign via his website. Likewise, his 
website was under attack. What would we think if we as members of OWASP 
helped senators, congressman, etc in a non-partisan way audit their 
websites at no charge and do so in exchange for an OWASP badge at the 
bottom of their site.
We all make fun of those websites that display badges indicating 128-bit 
SSL but need to noodle whether the badging strategy could work for OWASP 
as a way to spread brand in a controlled manner. Bringing a higher-level 
badging strategy would be beneficial to the industry. Imagine a badge 
indicating that they are OWASP Top Ten compliant where upon clicking it, 
we could explain security to average users...
