... and just to underscore this, we (Hugh and I) stand ready to provide the
resources to implement if we can get it approved by Robert Elz. I
don't think there is any actual objection from Robert to our ideas here,
other than a probable belief that noone would use it. No loss there if we
try and fail - that's what the Internet is about - *doing* things.

It would form a decent example of a domain that "just plain worked", and if
nobody cared - well, there would be no damaging effects from this either.

Consider that most business cards in Australia already contain the ACN (I
think they might have to as a legal requirement for that matter). Consider
being able to derive a domain name for that company directly from that ACN.
Consider that in ADDITION to whatever other domains the company has, as a
backstop which "always works" based on the business card in your drawer.

We (Hugh and I) suspect we could full automate a lot of this by using
electronic copies of the ASC database, which are likely to be obtainable
from the ASC as they are effectively a public register.
