Well, there should be some type of organizational standard so that
applications, like QGIS, can query the database properly. Then again,
that could be handled by a database function that simply provides
a table/view of postgresql data in the proper organization.

No, I haven't suggested this on that list.
My only real worry was that if I import 200 vectors, I will end up with
200 different tables in the database...
