I would have thought that registrations (and accelerated rate of growth) in 
relevant analogues such as .jp, .ca and .de would have clearly indicated 
demand in the second levels of ccTLD spaces.

I would think that independent research using these to assess demand in 
the .au space would have been an appropriate use of a foundation grant.
