I didn't assume that, it is your false interpetation of what I stated.  On the
other side of the coin however is the fact if someone profits it doesn't mean
it is to the public good.  It could be either way or no impact at all.  I
can't see how opening up the market and relaxing the rules will be for the
better, it would allow profits for some but that doesn't equate to the public
good.  If you or anyone else can show there would be substantial benefits for
the public by making changes I'd be happy to see the evidence.

Individuals may see some value, doesn't mean it is there or for the general

My opinions are not in the minority and I haven't expressed any idelogies, you
are projecting.  The measure is what I percieve as the value of the .au
namespace as an individual and from exposure to the values others see.

Why should business decide the future of the .au namespace?  Why should the
public entrust anything to business.  Business is designed to revolve around
profit, nothing more, it doesn't have the best interests of the public in
mind.  Markets can be manipulated by business and I personally would not like
to see the .au namespace ruled strictly along business lines.
