I passionately believe that we should be focusing our energy on making
Level 1 the cert that anyone who wants to participate in the IT world
HAS to get, to prove they are competent and worthy of hire, (yes I know,
experience counts, but see my previous postings about how people who
DONT HAVE the experience and are hiring need an independent metric
called certification) and not worry about Level 4 or even the existence
of such a level.

It will naturally follow that less amounts of people will graduate
through to Level 2, but that is ok, there needs to be levels to graduate
through, the mind of man/woman is much better served in small measurable
steps than in one long event.

I can't remember any certification structure that has ever gone over 3
levels, RHCT->RHCE->RHCA comes to mind as a 3-tier, MCP->MCSA->MCSE is
another, the old Sair LCP->LCA->LCE is an example of how not to try to
build levels, certification in this space isn't "If you build it they
will come" it's "because there is a need, you build it and keep changing
and improving it as more and more people come into the market."
