I think domains in aus.com will be transferred
to other hosts, but they are certainly not
the legal property of the domain holder.

Domains in aust.com WILL NOT be redelegated
to other hosts.

AND: au.com is in the same boat as aus.com.


To conclude:

com.au

Domains in com.au WILL be redelegated to
any host required and remain the legal
property of the domain holder.



At the risk of repeating the bleedin' obvious:

(*) au.com, aus.com and aust.com could lapse anytime
    due to nonpayment; all their 3LD's lose in that case

(*) and administrator of au.com, aus.com and aust.com can
    easily withdraw a 3LD, or refuse one based on personal
    or political grounds and the applicant has no recourse;
    this is NOT the case with *.au domains

(*) *.au domains will go on forever ... they are THE sanctified
    TLD's in Australia
