Good question. I like the realis/irrealis distinction, and often use it to supplement my definitions in the classroom. The only qualm I have with it is I'm not sure it adequately describes habitual action in the past. Such actions are, to my mind, realis. To see them, however, as indefinite, I think overcomes this problem.
I'd be interested in your thoughts on this.
