Not against this in spirit but I don't see the point.
Every class already has its own forum. Post your trades there.
There isn't much variation between gearing needs. If something has your attack stat on it, you're 90% of the way there already. Class-specific items rarely contain any meaningful bonus as they don't usually roll worthwhile base stats, and a lot of the nice secondary stats aren't terribly common on otherwise good pieces of gear anyway.
How about, instead, three trading forums: a DEX-based, INT-based, and STR-based forum? This wouldn't necessarily limit items in the DEX-based forum to only items having DEX; one could post any item useful to a DH or Monk, even if it didn't have their attack stat. This would mostly work for your idea, yeah, you'd have to do a little more hunting, but it would keep the number of new forums to three instead of 5 + future classes.
That's my thought, anyway.
