I have been surprised before, and am again, by some of auXX's pricing
decisions.  Compare the cost of an auCD domain and CMS hosting package over
five years to the cost of the nearest alternative:

auCD
----
Registration fee, two years (cheapest registrar): $615 x 2.5 Hosting and CMS
licence, year 1: $2200 + ($1500 x 4)
Total: $10,337.50

Alternative
-----------
Registration fee, .org.au (cheapest registrar): $9.50 x 2.5 CMS licence
(cheapest easy-to-use CMS, eg. Mambo): $0.00 Hosting (a cheap Australian
host supporting Mambo): $162 x 5
Total: $833.75

Quite rightly, only non-profit groups can apply for auCD domains.  How many
non-profit community Web sites do you know that would have the budget for an
auCD package?
