Yes.  (I hadn't noticed the difference between DNS: and [DNS] earlier,
sorry about that.)

There is also the question of how to refer to the list to distinguish it
from dns&#167;iaa (and other mail lists), other than "the new DNS list" (which
would quickly become dated) or "the WAIA DNS list" (which may not convey
the right connotations).

] Also, a total exclusion on 'other' DNS should not happen. Yes, the focus

] discussion if they might potentially impact us. Eg, there was discussion one

] names.

Perhaps the wording in reason 1 was over-reacting a bit.  IMHO the list
should be focussed on `exclusively Australian DNS', but allow comments
on other related topics as long as that doesn't swamp the main focus.
