Yeah Elf, the property name, actually does not matter that much to me...
but I do want the definition choosen to include all 3 ideas.. sector,
purpose, and competitive_space.  It's super useful to have those 3 ideas
lumped into 1 property, because there is extreme overlap in them all.  Dunn
& Bradstreet, Mantra, Guidestar, etc ... also lump them together.
