can you explain what you are talking about here? are you involved with IANA?
is this new rush on tlds something IANA is planning?

not everyone here beleives that .au is a good place to hang names off,
its overregulated, there is a single primary monopoly created by Robert Elz
for his mates at melbourne university. foreign compnaies are not
even welcome into the .au structure. the entire situation is a fiasco that
needs rectifying.
