I agree.  While the proposal to compete with Melbourne IT is sound, I'm
not sure that this is the solution.

Companies that already have, or propose to obtain, a domain, will
have to seriously consider reserving the same name in the domain,
firstly to ensure that they can be found under either name, and secondly,
and perhaps most importantly, to prevent another entity from acquiring
rights to the name.  We certainly don't want to go down the track of the 
USA where domain names are being acquired for speculative purposes.

I'd prefer to see competition for registry services, in preference
to another business domain.  I have yet to see an explanation as to why 
this cannot happen now.  Who is holding us all to ransom?
