Actually, the content of websites is already restricted under legislation
and if AuDA went to the government and suggested it may be a good idea to
restrict the content of websites referred to by .au to Australian content
I'd be fairly confident they would be able to get the backing required to
make it work.

I'm not sure it is something I'd like to see however.
