Excuse me people

I would naturally believe (and I expect that others in the industry and the
wider general public would also naturally conclude) that surely such
responsibility for a public awareness and consumer warnings about domain
registration in the .au space would, could and should already fall under the
duties of the industry peak body; hence the auDA??

Is this NOT the case??

If it is not the auDA then whom should it be?  Why?
