I agree with the above statement, and don't consider it appropriate
to restrict availability of certain domains for this purpose...  I'm
interested in the following statement though:

I can't seem to get to the site now, and so can't see what's there,
but are you saying that the claim to the domain was incorrect, or
is auda just against wildcard entries?

If the latter, under what policy can they possibly consider it
appropriate for wildcards to be removed?  Is there now a
restriction in place on what sub-domains a registrarnt can use?
