[DNS] [SPAM] A spot of phishing ..

If Westpac haven't noticed that registration in five months then they're either incompetent or they're paying someone that's incompetent. 

I don't think that's a valid reason go keep/change/discuss the rules relating to .com.au. 

TM-law-wise, if neither Westpac nor St George protect their Trademarks, they will eventually lose the protection (precisely why Google will not let you make their brand into a verb). 

Otherwise, that's the best argument I've heard, so far, for a .bank.au space.

Well, I suppose if your business if phishing, then stgeorgewestpac.com.au 
has a close and substantial connection to it ;-)
