Having said that, even though I'm in disagreement with Gerv about his 
perception regarding OV certificates, it's still troubling to hear that 
there is still no confidence in the work and diligence most of us 
probably do.

If we can change this perception by raising the bar with serious and 
reasonable improvements, we probably should do it. We certainly should 
eliminate well known risk first.
