I see the point, but languages can be "messy", and structures vary significantly from one language to another. Besides, it's easy (but not so clever in the end) to memorize code snippets.

I prefer testing someone's ability without a specific language. The logic is still the same. Candidates would only have to explain with simple words how to solve a problem.
