It was never on my radar that resellers create their _own_ registrar.  I
think that doing so would considerably weaken any collective reseller
position, and simply create the converse of the competitor scenario of which
I've complained.

Sean, if that's what you meant when you said that it's unworkable, then I'm
with you.

My interest is primarily in redressing resellers' currently weak position.
In terms of auDA policy, resellers don't even exist.   Consequently we have
no protection through auDA whatsoever, other than in the realm of domain
names.  Our vulnerability . however, is peripheral to that.

I believe that there are likely to be enough registrars who would agree not
to compete in our territory, so we needn't compete in theirs.  We need to
help those "independents" to succeed - without them we're even more
