I think it would be nice if Focusrite heard back that they're listed 
in such a way.  I know things like "linux friendly" (the behavior, as 
opposed to any branding) influences my hardware buying decisions.  In 
fact, that was at the top of my list when I bought a portable music 
player a few years ago.  It had to connect fine over USB for audio 
file transfers.  It had to support OGG, and it was a bonus to support 
FLAC, which it does.  It's a great little unit.
