I am opposed to a shared registry system. I don't believe that this is the
wayto go because in the end what you have is a CORE style organisation in
the middle.

The whole point of the NOMINET model is that the central function becomes a
purely technical service with a minimal cost associated, and essentially
ANY company or individual has equal access to that technical function.

So rather than having:

Level 1: COM.AU-CORE   at the centre
Level 2: Limited competing COM.AU registrars using this COM.AU-CORE service
Level 3: ISP's using the competing COM.AU Registrars
Level 4: End buyers

you have in the NOMINET model

Level 2: Any ISP wanting to be a COM.AU registrar
Level 3: End Buyers

Its fewer levels and more efficient and more competitive.
