You and I think alike, Joel.  If we *want* the more prestigious cert (and 
more challenging practice), perhaps we should be able to go for it.  They 
propably don't want to stratify us too much though, and end up supporting 
multiple directions.

If that is the course, your education takes on a more tangible value than 
a slip of paper saying you're certifiable.

I will miss having my work published having been validated by the 
industry.  I will miss the chore that forces me to apply the entire 
process and gain experience not able to be taught in the classroom.  I 
will miss Reading Room, where solutions can often be found having been 
proven and vetted by other IT professionals (often with much better 
instructions than vendor docs).
