Exactly.  And just to be clear, auDA's role, in auDA's own words, is as
follows:

From: http://www.auda.org.au/about/about-overview/

<snip>
Role of auDA 
auDA performs the following functions: 

-develop and implement domain name policy 
-license 2LD registry operators 
-accredit and license registrars 
-implement consumer safeguards 
-facilitate .au Dispute Resolution Policy 
-represent .au at ICANN and other international fora. 
</snip>

...ie nothing to do with the content of websites.
