[DNS] Monetised

For once I agree here.

I think that domain names should never ever ever have to have any
website AT ALL if they do not wish.

The Web / Web Browsing IS only one use of a domain, and it is narrow
minded to think that DOMAIN names only use are as WEB or EMAIL names.

It is also improper to have the requirement of ANY public content on the
main index page if a website DOES exist, it may be;
- hidden in a URL further back,
- may respond only to certain IP ranges, and 
- may require a password before you see ANY content, such as a B2B
Portal Site.
- A domain may only be used internally, but registered externally to
prevent anyone else causing technical issues.

The arguments on this list DO tend to concentrate on 'DOMAIN NAMES AND
THEIR USE FOR PUBLIC WEB SITES', as the web, and, email are arguably the
two highest and most prolific uses of .com.au domain names
