[Wine] Clarification of ratings...

I was browsing apps and looking for games that run in Wine as Gold or better.

The issue is that I see many apps listed as gold that require recompiling Wine with patches to get them to work.  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.)

Is it proper/(fair to Wine and it's image) to call an app Platinum/Gold/Silver if you have to recompile it after changing the base code?
