I like the idea of being arbitrary as opposed to superficial.

Personally, I would prefer knowing that the reason I did not get an interview was because of truly (or even pseudo) random selection criteria. It would still suck if I thought I was right for the job but it would be a little more bearable than knowing I didn't get an interview because someone didn't like my haircut or because I didn't fill my resume with buzzwords.

    Superficial can be a better bet for an employer.

    Filtering recruits just because they have a degree, or are J2EE certified may be superficial. You'll probably exclude some good candidates. However, you're still likely to end up with a pool of potential recruits with a slightly higher average skill level.
