You can read this as to say, No, there are other domain spaces which don't
have secondary markets allowed in their policies and that some people
disregard the .au policies as they see a secondary market as a means of
developing their personal finances.

As it is against .au policy some people find it difficult to fully exploit the
name space and feel restricted by the policy which is a good thing.  The
policy helps to keep the name space available as intended.
