[DNS] Domain dispute heats up

If we're looking at this from a registrant's point of view,
there are also downsides to the existence of another space.

If you register it, you face a lot of costs to change from 
acme.com.au to acme.au - like printing new business cards,
reconfiguring servers, changing user settings, etc.

If you don't register it, there's the risk that some other 
person will register acme.au and ask for thousands of dollars
to transfer it to the real Acme.

So Acme will feel under pressure to register both acme.au and
acme.com.au.  Which is great if you are a registrar, but not so
great if you are a business end user who now needs to pay twice
as much for domain registration.
