That old 69725.1 article does look nice, but still states that it applies only to Oracle7 through Oracle8!

Metalink note 149628.1, although slightly dated, suggests that the version
of the Listener should match it's hosted databases. It would then make sense to have one Listener per DB in order to be able to segregate them for
upgrading, patching, etc.

On a side note, while trying to find that Metalink note, I see that the very
old 69725.1 article has a new jazzy look. I like!
