Since Regime Change, MelbIT has never seemed too keen on registering
.asn.au domains.  One only has to check http://www.whatsinaname.com.au/
to see the degree of discouragement offered :) 

Our domain was 'accidentally' assigned to MelbIT as Registrar of Record
when the registry was first setup, from Connect West - who as I recall
weren't up to speed by the changeover - due I then understood to asn.au
previously having been managed by Connect West with distinctive database
procedures to MelbIT, who then covered most other 2ld.au's, and it took
some ongoing correspondence to get it moved back to CW at that time. 

History aside, I don't see why it should be a problem these days though.

Cheers, Ian
