Well - this does not seem to be necessary. If I use

#+begin_src fundamental

the block will be formated following the rules for "listings". Even if I use

#+begin_src BlaBlaBla

it does not produce an error message in LaTeX. Nice with fundamental: I can use 
C-c ' to open the
block in a new buffer and edit it there - very handy.

If I would like to have some highlighting in the source block in the LaTeX 
export, I obviously
would have to define a new language - nice idea actually for the final output.
