Recognizing people who pass Windows 2000 tests with new logos

With all the hoopla Microsoft did and is still doing for Windows 2000, why is Microsoft not recognizing people who pass any of their Windows 2000 tests with new logos?
My interpretation is that Microsoft wants us all to believe that it's the same good old MCSE program, only better, and that therefore the new Win2K curriculum needs no special labels, logos, or whatever kind of differentiation one might want. My more cynical interpretation of this situation is that they do not want to have to track MCSEs by type, only by date (with XP and 2002 coming onto the scene over the next year, tracking could get pretty tricky). This way, all they have to do is track MCSEs by dates of completion and they will know what "kind" they are dealing with.
