No way!  INTIAA is the ...Industry Association, not the Australian

The AVCC is not a member of INTIAA.  CSIRO is not a member of INTIAA.
Yet they are about half of the Australian Internet (in fact, long-
timers will remember that they established the Australian Internet).

Speaking for myself, I don't want to see .AU domain policy set by
a Industry Association that non-commercial organisations are
denied access to.

I want to see .AU domain policy set for good public policy reasons,
with reasonable policies and legislative protection for those doing
the work.

I certainly don't want the litigation, the monetary focus, and the
public snarling that is becoming characteristic of setting policy
in .COM.AU.

Just because the universities and research institutions disregard the
current .COM.AU mess, believing it to be irrelevant to their day-to-day
concerns and a good way of getting listed as a co-defendant in a
lawsuit (eg: R Elz), don't be fooled into thinking that the squeeky
wheel is the only one on the car.

There are two major products that came out of Berkeley:
LSD and UNIX.  This is no coincidence.
