It's actually rather easy to clean. Just need a cook top scrubbing pad which is just the right hardness to remove dirt but not scratch the glass. As far as scratches - there will be some after a few years of use but if you clean regularly, there won't be (much) dirt in them. Most just burns away or you wipe it away after the stove cools down. In fact, I would say the metal skid marks from aluminum pans are much more of a pain than your normal cooking grease and food runoffs.
Oh, and I have to add a disclaimer: I do actually clean it every so often, not just watch my wife do it :) So you can say it's from first hand experience :)

I have a GE with a black top. Shows up dirt? If you polish it regularly, that should not be a problem, I think. I don't imagine it scratches any worse than any other glass top. <shrug>

I'd be less concerned about dirt than in getting sugar splashes on it. I make jam and am VERY careful to not let the sugary mix splash on the stove burner when it's hot it will bond to the surface and removal is only accomplished with a sharp blade, used judiciously.

When I had something burnt on my glass top stove I used a single edged razor. I used the entire edge like when you scrape paint off a window pane. It worked great and didn't damage the surface.
