Actually, The Novell certification is done in a very similar way,  
just maybe not as dis-associated at you put it. They do state that it  
is just an addition to the LPI however. RHCE, that is another matter ;)

I agree that the principle of it is probably the best way of doing  
it, but I tend to agree that it may murky the waters of LPI being  
vendor neutral.
