That makes sense from a tunneled perspective of the build of the
technical system, but as we all know, technical systems don't operate
in a vacuum. I'll be interested if ACMA or any other govt agency,
AGIMO???, is looking at the change in the overall system: governance,
content, legal frameworks, etc. It would be nice if for once a hugely
expensive government development actually had a richer [as in
extensive] analysis than just 'build it and then we'll see' approach.
However, considering the lack of a Business Plan to start the thing,
I somehow doubt it to be the case.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
