I sent this yesterday but it hasn't appeared on the list after nearly 24
hours, so I'm resending.  Appologies if anyone gets this twice.

Hi all.  Has anyone looked at this as a prospect.  .com.au (like .com) is
one of the busiest domains and yet it is one of the few which lacks
geographic sub-domains (eg, qld.gov.au,nsw.edu.au,etc).  I've recently had
to register a .com.au domain which wasn't quite what I wanted, when a
qld.com.au domain would have done well.

.com.au is filling fast and this seems like a suitable way to increase
the available namespace without too much hassle (and it is consistent with
other aussie TLDs).

Thoughts, comments, flames?
