The first thing to understand for everyone is although you say a million
Australians have been disenfranchised it is a figure you have plucked from the
air and doesn't have any substance.  Anyone can apply and get a domain name
providing they follow the policies and rules.  They may not be able to get the
name they want but that occurs in every namespace.  Under the current rules
and policies they certainly have a better chance of getting a meaningful
hostname under a domain that is relevent.  

Allowing a number of people the ability to claim any hostname they want under
any namespace they want doesn't equate to providing a good service for the
majority even if there is demand for it.
