I am fully aware that this letter only granted authority over the 
com.au area of the .au namespace.  That is the whole point.

I also feel that the language does not seem neutral. Indeed I would 
go as far as saying from a legal perspective it is very strong in its 
indication of rights and duties. In the face of auDa's now extended 
existence I find it all the more compelling to suggest someone is 
dragging his feet. Why? Good question.

Also I firmly believe that Mr Elz's public stance on the matter seems 
to indicate that he is very keen to keep the .au under his hegemony.
