Thank you, Kelpie. You have no doubt saved me considerable research time.
I can now empathise with the proposed structure, and there is no doubt that many novels follow this sort of profile, but I think there is always room to break from the norm. There are doubtless many novels that do not follow this pattern, some of which have been very successful. I have to admit, however, that I have instinctively followed this sort of general outline without ever having heard of the seven point plot before.
