Agreed, and though I've come fairly late to the discussion, I was
surprised to find only one objective in the M&A that specifically
relates to competition:

        to provide and monitor the capacity of 
        Domain Name Administrators to operate fairly in 
        competition with each other in the delivery and 
        registration of Domain Names in Australia;

Seems like this is a bit light on detail and begs questions about ADNA's
objectives, including:
1.  Does ADNA intend to provide/ensure/promote or monitor
    competition?  This isn't clear.
2.  Specifically what powers and operational functions are
    required to carry out (1).
3.  Will ADNA have a role jump-starting competition and what
    role will it have after there's a competitive marketplace
    of DNAs for SLDs?

I'd like to suggest changes to the M&A but I'm not aware of a
consensus around these issues.
