I realise that it wouldnt be practical to research every domain name 
registered, and since have given the matter a little thought.

I would like to make 2 points:

1) Perhaps the system could be altered slightly to made more effective, it 
is not always a good idea to throw the baby out with the bath water.

If a registrar gets a request that it is not "comfortable" with, the name is 
put on "hold" for the client, and the final approval / denial rests with 
AUDA. It would be simple to implement as a trial, and would lessen the 
"burden" on the reigstrar while still maintaining the integrity of the 
system.

2) I dont have a problem with someone "pushing the limit" to validate 
"rights" to a name ... I have terorrism.com.au and at this point still dont 
supply the service lol - but if it is basically abused en mass, then the 
risk of a "DNA" type problem could emerge. A registrar who over a two day 
period gets a heap of requests from one entity for this style of domain 
would have to have their head firmly planted in the sand not to realise the 
applicant is probably upto no good.
