I note Skeeve's concern in this matter.

I have 4 simple queries to Melbourne IT which I feel should be openly
answered if this operation is to gather any degree of confidence in
its integrity as a real service to the Internet community in Australia

1. Why the relatively rapid timetable to charge existing holders of
   domain names?

2. What services does Melbourne IT provide to the registered party for he
   fee charged?

3. Will Melbourne IT expose its accounts to public scrutiny in
   operating this service?

4. What will happen to financial surpluses generated by this activity?
