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;

The members of ADNA will decide the policy for .au .
This is good - where is it bad ?
At present .au lies with kre who has done a stirling job, ADNA
is a propossal to formalise the management of .au

There is nothing sinister in the ADNA propossal, only what people 
are reading into it. The members of ADNA will decide policy, at the moment
no-one else has a voice in that process - ADNA will give them a voice.

What is wrong with it ?
