Are you familiar with the word 'scab' in English?  Not very appealing.  :)

I think is a very cool idea, Nolan.  Perhaps only the Members would be
able to nominate a program for submission?  That would give us
something else to do, and keep the Council from having to waste time
on apps which do not meet a certain predefined criteria.

I think that criterion #1 would be stict adherence and and
comprehensive utilization (where applicable) to XMPP & JEPs.

For example, take a script that simply logs into an account and sends
a message.  It could be XMPP compliant, yet not implement hardly any
JEPs since it is a single purpose script.  That could meet the
criteria above.

Yet neither a non-XMPP-compliant full-featured jabber client, nor an
XMPP-compliant client which does not implement Disco (which is in
JEP-73 Basic IM Suite) would pass.
