Yep this is what I have been tackling on a regional level in Gippsland.

I own most of the town domain names in a .net format and have been issuing 
them out to communities and training them how to use them. The process is 
slow and fraught with loopholes.

It is this experience that has caused me to draft the town.state.au 
paradigm with a central body running the show.
