Not really, 

This model is a chain licensing model, auDA controls the domains, the
registry supplies them, the registrar provides the interface to the
registry and applies the policies to hand them out, and the reseller
bundles them with thier services to provide value add.

To compare this to another model, you just need to look at phone services,
Australian Communication Authority provides the phone numbers, Telstra provides
the lines, Primus supplies the billing and extra services to the clients.
Nowhere along the line does the client have a relationship with anyone
other than Primus, except maybe the knowledge that they exist in the chain.
