From my understanding, any application that requires code changes should be listed as garbage and tied to a patch/bug to be able to operate. That and any application that ranks higher should run under a default build of Wine with minor configuration changes (DLL override, audio selection, etc.)

There was a discussion on this on wine-devel recently. The problem is
that users decide the rating, and although they're checked by
administrators, they can slip by.
And to answer your question, no. If patches are required, it should
not be gold, etc. All ratings should be based on what you can do
