Geez, what a non-event.  The demand from Registrants for fourth level
domains is about zilch.

Even 'newbies' inherently know that:

   foobar.com is the simplest
   foobar.com.au is second best in simplicity (but some of them may prefer
it because it puts emphasis on an 'aussie' element)
   foobar.anythingelse.com.au is a joke


If there was actually user demand for 4LDs in the .au namespace, then it
would be happening already under com.au.


I think we can add this offer from the web.id.au Registrant to the list of
"people demonstrating in public their poor understanding of what the market
actually wants".

Here's an interesting one, Graham Webber has registered "web.id.au" and is
now selling web.id.au sub-domains.

His web site suggests flowers.web.id.au, computers.web.id.au,
sydney.web.id.au, design.web.id.au,e, dvds.web.id.au, etc.

Does this break any rules?
