It's even easier than that.

If you have an ABN, you can pretty much register any .com.au domain  
you like by saying "It's the name of a project we're doing". No-one  
looks at the "justification" for a domain name any more. They haven't  
for years,

This is one of the reasons I get irritated with Linkers who seem to  
live in the past, and spout at "the rules" what was maybe relevant a  
decade ago. [eor]
