Well, I think your opinion is wrong.

Companies and organisations are already confused enough about which 2ld
to join (org vs asn, com vs net (or both)), but adding new ones.... what
is that actually supposed to achieve?

Is it simply another revenue stream for the registrars? or is it for the
good of the Australian internet?  I cant see how confusing people who
are joining the internet, and those already there is going to help.

What will more domains do? It will do exactly what happened with the
release of the new tld's... it sent people on a mad rush to get the best
names possible.... and that is simply a benefit to the registrars
ONLY... not to companies feeling they need to go and spend money to
reserve their *marks or risk having to get into litigation down the

I mispoke in my previous email where I said:



Because already exists.....

Can Australia deal with the inclusion of   perhaps... many
more?,, I doubt it... 

Creating these would simply help the business plans of the registrars
and no one else.
