Let me add one more thing --- some companies desire an "official"
certification to distinguish them from potential future companies
getting into the PostgreSQL support market in their geographical area. 
I can sympathize with that, particularly because a large company could
come into their area and grab much of their business.

However, I think part of our future success will be having more and more
companies spring up to meet user's needs, and offering global coverage
similar to only very large companies.

For small companies, I have encouraged them to get one of their
developers involved part-time in PostgreSQL development --- with someone
on their staff intimately involved in PostgreSQL development, it will be
harder for a larger company to come in and offer superior service.
