OSI certification mark and BSD licence

Dear all,

the BSD licence does not require me to distribute source code with it. Does 
this mean I could in theory distribute a program in binary form with a BSD 
licence and claim it was OSI certified?

(This is not intended to be mere pedantry - I was surprised that the use of 
"OSI certified" did not require that the software distribution should 
conform to the OSD. Apologies if this issue has been discussed before, I 
could not find it in the mailing list archive.)
