I have a very simple suggestion.

Here we come back to those little numeric codes that were created and
assigned to every category.  By creating a DNS heirachy for Trademarks such
as:  (someone can look up the codes, it's been a long time
since I've seen them) this allows also to be registered.

But now we are back to Simon Higgs dream concept.  Perhaps I shoudl invite
SImon to this mail list?  Any objections?

Simon can explain in great detail this process, sadly even I objected to
the process as there would truely be millions of possible places to try and
look.  But it's the ONLY possible answer.

Of course why not HAND TM.AU to the AIPO and let them worry about it?

Sometimes it's better NOT to be involved than to be involved.  Why create
TWICE the work?  Are the Registrars and Administrators of TM.AU going to
validate EVERY registration application?

If you ask for a certificate number, I could just make one up and you'll
accept it.  How many times have I seen made up ACN's been pushed forward as
"legit" ACNs for registration?  Even ARBN's have been randomly made up.

The Registry has to be prepared to foot the bill for validation of
selection criteria, if it makes another authority responsible for the
criteria.  ACN's are managed by the ASC, fine that's easier - it's online.  

Trademarks howevere aren't online in AU - yet.
