          I thought the whole basis of the DNS system was to use multiple
          servers to distibute the lookup load within a single domain. The
          domain structure matches the organisational and political
          realities of the world, not what the technical people would like
          to make their life easier.

          The telephone "namespace" is significantly skewed too, with most
          requests hitting two major telephone numbers: (03) 9 and (02) 9.
          This may cause some difficulties with Telstra and Optus, but is a
          fact of life.

          The COM.AU namespace (or it's equilivant) will always have the
          largest number of requests, as there are considerably more
          business names than government/educational/military names.
