There was a discussion about this very scenario in the auda/ausregistry .au
launch tour. I don't remember a definite take, but (letting the legal
details aside) there was mention of an obvious secondary issue:

Similar to au.com and other subdomains of this type, except the chances of
this happening in the .au space are much grater: I invest in my
microsoft.web.id.au identity only to potentially find out that the parent
domain gets cancelled (removed by authority, de-registered, expires, owner
goes broke, etc) I have lost my identity with no right to appeal. Not to
mention that after my shiny new domain goes on business cards and
billboards, there is little I can do about price increases for the
subdomain renewal.

My advice for any commercial organisation is to register domains in
regulated top level spaces.

Kind regards,
