I subscribe to your view. However, I'm not perfectly sure whether the term, "postdoctoral lecture qualification", as given by the LEO dictionary as a translation for the German expression, "Habilitation", is correct.
Here's a brief desciption for those not familiar with this matter:
In the German-speaking countries, the word Habilitation describes a postdoctoral curriculum similar to, but far more extensive, than a PhD curriculum. The procedure must be completed at many, but not all, German, Austrian and Swiss universities to qualify for full professorship. It usually takes around eight years and comprises (1) several first authorships in peer-reviewed journals (at least six to eight, depending on the university's regulations, plus a similar number of co-authorships); (2) a thesis (which in some cases is presented cumulatively as volume of the applicant's publications within an identical area of research); (3) a colloquium (i.e., a scholarly presentation in front of the so-called Habilitation Committee); and (4) an inaugurative lecture that is open to the public, whereupon the applicant receives a document officially acknowledging successful Habilitation. In addition, a number of formal requirements have to be met. "Habilitated" individuals may apply for professorship vacancies.
