G'day Everyone,

I tend to agree here. However, I'm also concerned to ensure that if these
2LD's remain as volunteer roles, that there are 'fair and just' mechanisms
put in place for organisations to receive their requested domain(s) without
too much frustration, and that the volunteersr have the resources to manage
