Please pardon my ignorance, but why not?

It seems that there is intended to be multiple DNA's within the .COM.AU
domain. It seems the only thing holding this back is the unavailability of
the tools and policies to make it possible.

If you are able to implement the tools and policies required to enable
multiple concurrent DNA's in a single 2LD, why not implement them in the
COM.AU domain instead of in a new 2LD?

By investing your time and resources into such development, you would be
helping to establish yourself as a worthy candidate for becoming a
competing DNA in the .COM.AU domain.

At this time the .COM.AU domain needs multiple competing DNA's really
badly. Offering competition in the form of a second 2LD is a second best
option to actually competing within the domain. There is already
competition in the form of alternative domains (.NET.AU, .COM .nf etc).

I think it is worth making every effort to offer competition within the
COM.AU domain as soon as possible.

MelbourneIT's bulk renewal incentive is very attractive. I suggest you
have about a week to have a proposal finalised and approved in principle
before a large percentage of domains are renewed taking advantage of this
limited offer.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Archer.
