Great idea !

Nop, we don't have such a thing. The Matroska DVDs would probably be 
like DivX CDRs or DVDRs. The user is free to put his files in any 
directory. Non .mkv / .mka files should be ignored (unless they are 
other file types you support).

> 2. A certificate for DVD Players a la "MKV certified" is available?

Not yet. We are going to redefine (or refine) the hardware profiles we 
created a long time ago. They will include the list of codec to support, 
the list of features to support, the resolutions, max bitrate, etc.

> 3. If a certificate is available, how to get it?

We'll create some test files for each profile. But we don't have any 
"official" certification planned. It might come when we define the logo 
to put on hardware devices (like yours).
