I suppose so. The 'close & substantial' (C&S) is so
vague that you can probably register any name you
wish. However I can't see you registering 1000
unrelated domains without drawing auDAs attention and
whats the point if you don't generate revenue from
them. 

The domain monetisation issue arose because people
were registering 1000 unrelated domains and using
monetisation to legitimise the process. Fair enough it
is a legitimate reason, which is why auDA clarified
the policy regarding monetisation and defined the
paramaters under which it can be used under the
eligibilty policy . So if you follow the guidelines
then you have nothing to worry about. 

Personally I think monetisation does not improve my
surfing experience. In the .com it is a fairly tiny
percentage of sites which are monetised. In Australia
with only 500,000 com.au registered the percentage is
larger and you come across them more often.
