MLS gateway

"MLS Future Presidential Advisory Gateway" published report in which it "suggested that the master database, called the "gateway," would serve as a growing collection of property information, housing current and historical data that would be immediately and easily available directly from the gateway or through participants' service provider of choice. The proposal does not provide for public access, as the group plans to study that matter separately."
You can find more details in the article "Removing local boundaries key to MLS future".
The proposal seems to fall far short on what is needed. Why it acknolwdges the impact of sites, such as zillow.com, cyberhomes.com and realestateabc.com its vision of the future fails to acknowledge a possible impact of companies such as trulia.com and other alternative sources of the listing data in the future. Pls check also a previous posting in this Blog "MLS in Turmoil".
