Not to mention a number of domains for which renewals have been submitted!!

That might be how it was supposed to work, but unfortunately it seems
that a number of our customers have received these letters, despite
renewals being submitted for their domains several weeks ago (well before
the February 10th cut-off date)

Melbourne IT's response - they "stuffed up".

Of course, where this is really going to become an issue (other than
the obvious fact that it makes both the ISP in question and Melb-IT look 
like they are incompentant) is when the customer decides to pay for the 
domain, and the ISP does as well!!
