I'm thinking that if it clearly uses the same amount of stitches around, it would be really easy to certify. So, if a square pillow that's 10x10 has 40inches perimeter, a round pillow that's has the same amount of inches in circumference would be easy one to certify. I divided a circumference of 40 by pi to find out that a pillow with a diameter of 12.7 inches (32 centimeters), would have the same amount of stitches as a 10x10 pillow.
That's a lot of math! Basically, if your pillow is 32 cm across, I can easily certify it. If not, then I'll have to ask the higher-ups to weigh in.

Or might the requirements be expanded to include reusing/repurposing old synthetic stuffing materials? I think this is a pretty good way to sequester the stuff, which is hard to figure out what to do with.
