Yes, but those terms exist within the wider legislative framework.  If you
try to restrict a perfectly legal use of a domain name then you're just
asking for someone to challenge those terms in court, as a restrictive trade
practice under the Trade Practices Act or whatever.

It is not within auDA's remit to set policies relating to the content of
websites.
