Actually it was a Registrar who was accepting applications prior to the
10:00 am start and the domain name in question was classed as a restricted
word under the old policy.

If an application was queued and then processed then that brings into
question at what point is the contract made. I assumed that when you check
the "I agree to Terms & conditions" box then that is when you are entering
into the contract not when it is processed. If this is the case then a
restricted word was obviously unavailable at that time.

Also I didn't realise that one could pre-register domain names in the au
namespace.
