My message seemed to generate a lot of personal e-mail directed my way.

It seems that there is support for another, not-for-profit, com.au registry.
AUUG, ISOC-AU and AUSCERT have all been mentioned as possible candiates.

I won't and can't speak for any of these groups, but I am now of the firm
belief that one should take up the role. I really like the idea of AUSCERT
looking after it, as they already have a perceived neutrality (although that
might change in their refocus to subscriptions - ie. favour subscribers
over others). Anyway, who ever it ends up being, there appears to be a lot
of support.

A worry is the issue of who owns the DNS servers, and how two or more
of these registry organisations gain access to these servers. Not to mention
how to deal with conflicts (ie. two people go for witherspoon.com.au at the
same time through different registries).
