Or at least standardise it and make it match Australian corporations law.

The main problem is that the .au DNS server needs to be able to point one
server which is authorative about  Hence this needs to be in the
control of someone other than any of the competitors (combatants?) and they
both need to be able to insert new domains into it.  Also, their needs to
be some mechanism to ensure none of the companies adds the same name at
once.  According to the DNS, the DNS servers are:

Authoratative answers can be found from:
(munnari.OZ.AU)                    inet address =
(munnari.OZ.AU)                    inet address =
(                inet address =
(                inet address =
(orb.ISI.EDU)                      inet address =
(mx.nsi.NASA.GOV)                  inet address =
(           inet address =

And here my understanding and knowledge of DNS falls down...  DNS gurus
enter stage left please!
