Neither does the repeated assertion that anything put forward by a 
registrar is necessarily evil and for their own benefit.

The difference is that registrars represent the wishes of the vast 
majority of domain buyers, whereas the non-registrars or resellers on 
this list represent a totally insignificant percentage of the people 
using .au domains. Your views are perfectly relevant, but are nowhere 
near as important or representative as you like to think they are.

err... what's the connection? Vic has his opinions, I have mine. It may 
be a huge surprise to you, but I don't actually agree with all his 
points of view (much to his annoyance :)). Either way, it is an 
unrelated subject, he was asking for another type of rule relaxation, 
it's merits don't in any way impact on the issue of registrant transfer
