Advertising?  Not at all, suggesting.  Why is it I advertise and others
mention?  Should I have a mystery person posting about alternatives instead?

There are also ACCC people on Aussie-ISP, so don't worry, they are WELL
aware of the matter.  It's been discussed numerous times in the last three
months with staff at the ACCC.

In short, I guess I agree.  But then do you also tell everyone their Phone
number isn't portable, or is that assumed?

Do you also tell the person who purchases a Pizza from a store and drives
45 minutes that the pizza won't be as nice when they get to the destination?

Why does a domain name have to be any more portable than a phone number and
street address?

If you move house you can't take the address with you. 

If a company moves address, it can't take the building?

Just a few devils advocating questions, I'd love to see some comments on.
This has of course been discussed in the USA DNS mail lists from
yesteryear, and if I can find the thread, I'll repost the discussion, or
make it available on my web server. (Preferances??)
