The Greeks had a word for this: hubris 

Dear boy if you really think that by allowing companies based in Bridgetown Barbados 
and two bit $2 proprietory companies with no real tech background, money or resouces 
to be registrars this integrity will be maintained - think again.

We already have one accredited .au registrar who engages in very dubious practices 
with TLD domains (haven't we Ed?). How soon before these cowboys start playing 
ducks and drakes with the .au name space?
