1) What was the point of this pre-emptive registration?

- to warehouse names so that the Australian public would be denied them

2) Why wasn't the mistake rectified at the time it was discovered?

- because I thought it would give you something to write about 11 months
down the track

3) Given the monopoly position that Ausregistry occupies why didn't you
use all the registrars rather than the one overseas domiciled one? 

See my last email - commission

4) Namescout makes it very hard for registrants to transfer domains to
another registrar. This and  inertia would give the "Registrar of
choice" a free kick.

Yes - well worked out!

4) Was there a valuable consideration paid for the registration of these
domains? If so did AusRegistry pay GST on these transactions?

No. We have a secret deal with them.***
