That whole process is a joke in and of itself.
But what matters is that, when there's a perceived need to translate experience into credentials, people don't hesitate to try. If certification was considered a goal worth trying, the necessary mechanisms would be created. Probably, too, the mechanisms would satisfy most people who used them.
