FSF's idea was already DOA, why do you want even crazier and more pointless one?
At least with "Respects Your Freedom" mark you have a clear list of requirements. "Works with 2.6.32+" does not have such a list - because there are no clear-cut rules which can be followed to guarantee inclusion in linux kernel!
This is idea will be workable if and when all devices will use standardized interfaces (a-la USB sticks), but
1. It does not look like it'll happen any time soon and
2. If this will actually happen the mark will be even more pointless: all devices with happily work with Linux at this point.
