| The domain name err... webname is actually registered to auDA.

Well, I think auDA is nominally the registrar for AusRegistry's names
to remove perceived favouritism if anyone was looking. But I'm pretty
confident that that web page is not a creation of auDA's, and certainly
I am pleased to report the term "webname" does not appear at all on
auDA's website..

Trying to push common usage of a term like "webname" will never take
off.. and I think if it is ever tried to be used in any official way
will just create increased confusion.
