&#167;If this is true why is it so hard to do it with you here?
&#167;If it would be so easy without you it should be even simpler with you.
&#167;I would think you could start as chairman of the new body.
&#167;or is that to easy?

I believe that Robert Elz just stated that he has no intention
of driving that process and also does not know how to build
consensus. Apparently he is an academic, not a business
person or manager.

I suggest that you identify and document the TOP 8 people
in the .AU TLD and take that story to the IANA and get the
delegation changed if that is what those 8 people vote. If
Robert Elz is one vote out of 8 and he votes no, the IANA
should be given that information.

Just remember...July 4, 1998 is coming...
