But the auDA derives its income from the Registrars... therefore it is
in the interests of auDA to create new 2ld's for the Registrars to have
access to.  Because when the Registrars profit, so does auDA.

Who brought up the idea of new 2ld's? auDA... will the Registrars
support it? of course they will..
