Just as a slight aside that is a question I have been
wrestling with for a few years with developing a set
of geographic names owned by Clarity.

We have registered all CapCityState.com and .net 
combinations for Australia except CanberraAct.com
(which was the only one that was was taken)

eg SydneyNSW.com, SydneyNSW.net, AdelaideSA.com,
MelbourneVic.com etc.

Now I have a number of my own ideas on how they could
be best used but actually picking a decent option
(either from a commercial point of view or being
benevolent and contributing something to the benefit 
of Australian net users in general) is not as simple 
as you might think.

A fragmentation of different uses of different geographical
names is probably not the best option for deplying these so
coordinating their use is something that is desirable I think.
(be it the names above or within 'state.com.au' for 
instance).
