I'll take that as a question, not an accusation.

Sharing a data centre does not mean sharing data. It doesn't even make 
it more likely or even more easy.

If the Federal government's data centre strategy recommends sharing of 
data centres then it's going to have to address this concern up front.

Declaration of interest: I'm on the government's data centre strategy 
team. I don't speak for the team or the government.
