That is precisely why I raised the Strathfield issue!

David, if there are "heaps of domains registered pre 1996 which are
prohibited by the current com.au policy (and have been for over 5 years)" I
have to ask:  If a domain name must comply with current policy at its
renewal, how can "heaps" of domains have gone through at least two
iterations of renewal when they don't comply?

The main thing is whether it was allowed under the com.au policy
at the time of initial registration.  There are heaps of domains
registered pre 1996 which are prohibited by the current com.au
policy (and have been for over 5 years).

I'm glad to see people thinking about these things.  Hopefully
there will be a lot of thoughtful submissions when auDA sets up
a panel to work out what to do with geographic names.
