What do you need for a 'id.au' domain?

   * The registrant needs to be an Australian citizen or resident.
   * The domain is for private use and cannot be used for business.
   * The domain needs to be based on the name of the user.
     This could be their first, last or nick name (or a combination there of)
     If their name is not in English it can be based on the English 
version of their name.


Looks like for 'sinclair.id.au' the tech contact registering the 
domain put their name in the wrong field.
