[DNS] serious flaws in auda board structure

the structure of the board is fundamentally flawed and needs urgent repair.

auda is funded by com.au, without com.au there would no
registry, registrars, resellers or viable domain name space.

.com.au is a commercial name space which represents the absolute
majority of names in the space. yet the "demand" position on the board
in no way reflect the real buyers in the name space.

everytime an issue comes up, the "demand" people bring up the evil
of registrar making money and the "feel good" astethic arguments despite the fact
that the public in fact only buy around 100 domains a month out of something well over
10,000 .com.au names.

"public feel good" arguments are utterly irrelavent to a commercial name
space, and should only be applied to .id.au.

I call on AUDA to reflect the reality of the name space in .au on the
board, the demand places should be reserved for entities representing
commercial bodies ie chambers of commerce etc, and not people representing
an insignificant minority of name buyers infliciting blatent
anti-commercial bias against the commercial name space.
