That you can count on. I have to disagree that my point is
theoretical, but instead it is practical. There is enough common
fields between each of the different types of real estate listings
that are not included with hListings, becasue it deals with a much
larger set of different types of unrelated  "things" to list.

To me that sentence in itself explains pretty well why people dealing
with  real estate listings would benefit from having a separate
standard for them.
