Then Tkabber fails its compliance and certification test.  Which is 
fine if they don't care, but they lose the little badge and get bumped 
from the list of certified clients; the clients on the list implement 
file transfer as per spec, and thus if you download one you know it'll 
file transfer with any other one on the list.

This seems more like an argument FOR certification than against. ;)
