Except that auDA have inserted a $3000 per annum obstacle
in the way of that cunning plan.

In my opinion a one-time $3000 fee would be justifiable.
That would cover the cost of administering the accreditation
process. But once a registrar is up and running, ongoing
costs are (or should be) minimal.

A $3000 per annum fee is simply an artificial construct
designed to stifle competition in the registrar segment
of this industry.
