good point, thats exactly what we should do. crooks just borrow real
peoples abn's and get real .com.au domains. the rules do nothing to prevent
this. but the rules create a false sense of security which to my mind is
very dangerous.

at the recent auda conference, registrars overwhelmingly voted for
opening the up top level .au space for registration. again I think
many cctlds have done this and the sky hasnt fallen in.
