We have done this in some cases for the gtld environment via contractual
terms.
In other words the reseller takes on the responsibility, and must
provide the proof of authorisation on request.  Of course the registrar
is ultimately liable, so this would only generally be done if the
reseller was in turn worth taking legal action against - or perhaps
provided a substantial bond etc.

It is an area that needs to be treated carefully - and is probably a bit
early in the policy evolution process to do for .au - especially given
the practices of even accredited registrars that do not get permission
from the registrant - let alone their resellers.

Regards,
Bruce
