This "fleet" business

Okay, just checked the MED.

"flet" is a noun, meaning "(a) The paved floor of a room or hall, floor; 
into the ~, to the ground; (b) a room or hall with a paved floor; room, 
hall; a dwelling, living quarters, a home."

Which explains the origin of the "house-room" theory, but not what it means 
in the context. I didn't find any meanings which equate to "light" although 
there is one context in which it can mean skimming milk.
