And to anthropomorphize for a moment... do you like every single person you meet? Would you feel it fair that you HAD to like every single person you met on the street? Add in that animals do not come with the morals and ethics that allow us to act one way and think another... Just saying!
But you could say that about any of the requirements. "Needs to be drivey/energetic/fun" you can get BC's, Field bred Goldens etc that come from lines that have all that typically but manage to get a fluke that doesn't and it's not "fair" to them to say they need to have it.

This thread seems to be made on generalities rather than anything else so I think adding "no interhouse animal aggression" is fair and valid, just as much as saying you don't want DA or HA in your "perfect breed"
