This is the first time I've ever heard anyone even mention the existence
of CGL, and I work professionally as a systems administrator for critical
services (on Linux, even).  Does anyone actually care about this
specification?  Often this sort of thing ends up being essentially a
marketing tactic by the vendors involved in developing the specification
rather than being something useful for improving technical quality.
