It sounds to me as if the qualifying panel is essentially going to do what I do when I hire, interview candidates, contact references and evaluate submitted samples, except that my impression is that the emphasis is going to be the reverse of the order I listed them - and the reverse of where I would put the emphasis in my own evaluation. If so, the certification would be of little use to me as a hiring manager, though I can see how some non-publications person trying to distinguish between two candidates when he/she has no idea how to evaluate writers might find it a useful tool - or a crutch that results in hiring people who are good at interviewing.

I'm really at a loss in figuring out how one would justly approve or deny people for TW certification.
