Some quick observations:

1	I can't see the relevance of the "security lock" - that protection
is an integral part of every registrar's procedures

2	How can they offer a 1-year renewal when there's a 2-year minimum
for .com.au domains?

3	The offer is a "not-opt-out" one that involves a "We'll take your
money if you don't reply".  I have a BIG problem with that one.

4	I have a problem with the notion that the "not-opt-out" debit
authorisation is couched in terms of "this is a free security feature" - a
plain nonsense, especially when the "protection" is provided by every
registrar.

5	Although an apparently small excess, isn't there a maximum of 90
days prior notice?  Why 95 days?

6	There's an inference that if you turn the "security feature" off you
no longer enjoy protection against malicious transfers to other registrars.
Isn't this then in violation of the Registrar's Agreement?
