How about a 'removal for non-use' in the .com.au terms and conditions.
For example, a requirement that the domain name be delegated (this is
just a suggestion) within three months of registering the domain name?
If there was a default, the name would be deregistered, with the
proportion of the fee lost refunded to the registrant.
