IMO these test have the "potential" to guide prospective employers on 
the abilities of a potential candidate.  In much the same way as say a 
ASE certification says something about a particular mechanics skills.  
That said everyone on the list who has knows a crappy ASE mechanic raise 
their hand.  On the other hand given no other information on two 
different shops which would you choose the ASE shop or the non-ASE 
shop?  This analogy however dosn't translate perfectly because there is 
no one governing body over IT certifications.  It might just well be 
that there will never be, given the huge amount  variation in hardware 
and software.  If I am on the right track here, then one might say that 
the primary reason that RedHat and Cisco certs own much of the 
popularity in the US Biz market due to the proliferation of Redhat OS 
and Cisco Hardware?
