It has been pointed out several times that such a certification would, by
nature of our field, have to be highly subjective. Imagine this scenario: A
writer fails this subjective test, is denied a certification, and then has
trouble securing employment. If the sponsoring organization could not prove
the objectivity of their testing methods, you could find themselves being
constantly being sued.

Pro-certification or anti, does anyone expect it to happen in the next
five years?

I suggest it won't, because:
