I don't believe that is the case.

George, there IS a demonstrable public interest oversight in place, in
the form of the DNS Industry Forum, which has been atended by observers
from the ACCC and DOCA to date. We have the opportunity to keep
strengthening this Forum, through broader attendance at the meetings -
which depends on more participation from those reading these mailing
lists - and through creating a more formally representative,
incorporated governance structure to support industry self-regulation.

I adhere to the view that improvements to the naming policy can and
should be made ASAP, in order to serve COM.AU's customer base; and that
these improvements will be largely transparent to the issues of whether
there will be single or multiple DNAs for COM.AU etc, and independent of
the nature of future governance structures.
